This time of year, it is not uncommon to see UPS drivers dashing from stop to stop delivering packages, like Santa trying to make it to every child before Christmas morning. Just last week I was driving on Highway 175 towards Kemp and I saw a UPS delivery truck driving faster than I was on the highway and HE WAS ON THE SERVICE ROAD.
That kind of dangerous driving leads to accidents. UPS puts a lot of pressure on these drivers to deliver an almost impossible amount of packages during the Christmas season. That is why you hear about so many drivers simply dumping out packages on the side of the road because they simply couldn’t make their delivery times and were desperate.
By the way, those UPS trucks are big, commercial vehicles, so if that driver doing 75+ mph on the service road had struck another vehicle at that speed, its pretty much guaranteed that there would be significant injuries, and possibly fatal.
Since UPS drivers are in large commercial vehicles, not only do they have to abide by state transportation laws, but they also have to abide by federal safety regulations promulgated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. These laws apply to all commercial vehicles and 18-wheeler trucks.
If you are involved in an accident with a UPS vehicle, the damages can be severe and are often fatal. These drivers pay less attention to the road during peak delivery season, like Christmas, because they are in a mad dash to get their deliveries done on time.
