Some interesting photos...
I can't imagine a practical delivery situation for those things except maybe for a letter only air route. The fourth picture is a bit scary, looks to me that someone wasn't thinking.
Got any additional info. on photo # 4 ?
Hard to believe there is any practical use for anything with that zap car except for small and smaller paks. That fourth picture I cannot believe he did not see that coming, the road looks like he could've slowed to a stop well before encountering that flood.
Also, was there really a need for two people to deliver? Secondly note right side driver, for you guys outside the USA, the only vehicles with right side steering are postal workers and some garbage collections trucks.
"10:25. Only one more next day to get off. It doesn't look deep...."
I don't know why there are 2 delivery people? JMO. Maybe UPS will look into delivering mail? I don't see any other reason for UPS to spend money on a car,probably electric and made for someone that fits in it.
I would think that one of the few uses for a vehicle such as this would be if they dropped a TP-60 in a central location and then the driver would work out of the trailer all day, ideally delivering to apt complexes.
I'm guessing there's two people because one has to guard the packages in the open vehicle while the other delivers....
My guess is that one is a supervisor and the other is a helper and there was someone else driving another car taking the pictures.
The supervisor was driving and probably getting use to the vehicle so he could train others on how to drive this vehicle ( no sharp turns? ).
The first 3 pictures were from somewhere in CA. The last one I don't know but its possible the water had risen since the truck was left there...
Delivering out of the back of an open truck. Ever hear of rain or snow?
id love to see the ups freight version of these
Here you go:
in an effort to save money, ups freight announced the new zapcar tractors will not be equipped with air brakes
An "A" for effort.
I give it a C+ at the most!
City Driver, make sure you pre-trip that thing. It looks a little rough around the edges.
lol yea im pretty bad with the photo editing
there appears to be no 5th wheel
5th wheel? We don't need no stinkin 5th wheel
personally, I am more concerned about the other wheels half missing.
(no better at photoshop myself)
