US Postal Truck Crashes

US Postal Truck Crashes

The United States Postal Service delivered more than 160 billion pieces of mail last year. With enormous numbers like this, it comes with little surprise that the company employs 551,570 people, in 35,756 retail offices, using 213,881 USPS vehicles. While providing services to their 935.7 billion customers, it is not uncommon for many US postal truck crashes to occur each year. As more and more of these vehicles enter the Connecticut roadways to service their customers, all motorists must be aware of the presence of these vehicles.

Americans depend on the US postal system to deliver their mail promptly, all while maintaining safe practices to protect the streets in which these delivery trucks travel. Sadly, hundreds of US postal truck crashes occur each year, making it difficult to safely and successfully deliver all pieces of mail on time. Though the help of the U.S. Department of Transportation, USPS has established the Motor Vehicle Safety Program to promote driving safety and reduce the number of losses suffered each year.

Due to their presence all throughout the state of Connecticut, the rate of US postal truck crashes occurs far more often than many would imagine. As USPS employees travel across the state in postal vehicles to their various locations, it is the duty of the trucker driver to operate the vehicle as safely as possible. If you or a loved one has been injured in a US postal truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

Facts about USPS

The US Postal system is one of the most important organizations in the entire country. Tasked with the responsibility to accurately deliver mail each and every day, residents in every city in every state depend on these services to deliver mail in a timely manner and as safely as possible. Therefore, USPS employees are thoroughly trained as they develop their skills necessary to perform their job properly.

These USPS staff members undergo intense training both inside and outside of the classroom. For example, mail delivery hopefuls will learn the ins and outs of the business inside and then transfer to observe field work. In doing so, USPS ensures that these people are trained in every aspect possible. Some of the most recognized goals of the USPS training and development include:

  • Obtaining new knowledge in relation to USPS, boost skill level, and build ability to perform more job duties
  • Improve upon current job duties
  • Consistent education about postal systems, new procedures, and new technologies being used
  • Help to facilitate a career path within the USPS organization

Clearly, USPS creates a positive atmosphere for its employees where learning and growing is encouraged. As a part of this growth, all employees responsible for operating vehicles are trained to do so as safely as possible. Nevertheless, accidents certainly still occur. If you or a loved one has been injured, our US postal truck crashes lawyers are here for you.

Motor Vehicle Safety Program

As mentioned before, the Motor Vehicle Safety Program is overseen by the U.S. Department of Transportation. These two programs work hand in hand to create a safe driving atmosphere for all residents in cities and states where USPS is present. Not only do these programs help to reduce the number of motor vehicle collisions each day, while promoting safety, they also help to make the flow of mail distribution much more efficient.

The Accident Analysis portion of the Motor Vehicle Safety Program serves to help prevent US postal truck crashes. For example, if a Connecticut USPS truck driver is involved in a collision. The Accident Analysis portion of the Program will help the trucker’s superior to determine how various aspects of the route, delivery, etc. may have contributed to the crash. The ability to analyze these factors greatly reduces the likelihood of another accident in this manner.
