    Road Team Captain Touts Trucking, Transportation Careers in White House Visit

    WASHINGTON, May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ralph Garcia, a professional truck driver with ABF Freight System Inc. and a member of America's Road Team, told Obama administration officials about the rewards, and challenges, of a career in trucking during a White House forum as part of National Transportation Week.

    "It was an honor to be invited to the White House to promote something I believe in so strongly – the importance of the trucking industry," Garcia, a native of Rio Rancho, N.M., said following the forum.

    ..."There's no better way to earn a living than behind the wheel as a professional driver," Garcia said. "In my 30 years as a driver, I've seen so much of this great country that I wouldn't have had the opportunity to experience."

    Um, I think they're too afraid of you.

    Just think of all the extra security they'd have to hire.
