Most HandyDart drivers are great
Editor: I read S. Seipp's letter in your May 29 publication and I thank her for bringing to our attention the poor conduct of the one HandyDart driver.
I have been a regular passenger on HandyDart for the past year and have ridden with a large number of drivers, however none named Luke. I would like to put in a kind word for the 99 per cent of drivers who have displayed courtesy and care to me and many aged and disabled passengers.
In conversation, I have asked many of them how they like their job. Everyone that I asked said much the same thing, that they get a great deal of satisfaction out of helping aged and disabled people get out and around. I have seen drivers carefully deliver passengers right to their door, then give them a hug before they leave.
I do not doubt S. Seipp's remarks, and in fact agree with the points made. However, I feel compelled to once again point out that the large majority of drivers should not be judged by the one per cent who dispay poor conduct.
