True pros will accept stability systems

Dear Editor:

Dear Editor:

I enjoy reading your magazine very much. It keeps me informed on how drivers across this great country cope with what seems to be constant change and challenges in our industry.

Every once in a while, however, I have to shake my head in disbelief at some of the selfprofessed professionals who write in and demonstrate that dinosaurs are not extinct, some actually hold the steering wheel of big trucks.

Mr. Ficociellos contention (Letters to the Editor, March 2008) that technology to prevent rollover makes you, by his definition “not a professional driver,” is in itself unprofessional and just downright dumb.

Technology that helps prevent accidents, helps avoid driver fatigue and also saves lives is and should be welcomed by the true pros.

By the way, I drive a dry bulker with a four-legger as well as a cement mixer and am 60 years old.

Get with the 21st century, Gino.
