    No clue. But would have to surmise if it happened on a Saturday night, chances are it's not Express. Ground or Home delivery if I had to guess

    I wonder if, in the last 12 months, the total number of dead drivers nationwide as surpassed the total number of dead cops nationwide. When it becomes more dangerous to be a delivery person than a cop, its time to wake up.

    Statistically, driving a motor vehicle for a living is more dangerous than being a cop. The number of dead drivers for ALL companies would easily surpass the number of cops killed in the line of duty. For FedEx

    From what the link says he ran a stop sign and was thrown from his vehicle. I'd say he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

    I've been wearing mine for about 40yrs, got in the habit long before UPS. I put the key in the ignition in my car with one hand grab the seat belt with the other.

    Sad to see anyone killed regardless of opco. Drivers from every company need to take safe driving seriously!

    Our oldest will be 15 in a few months. 2nd kid is just short of 2 years behind her. I ever see or hear either one didn't have a seatbelt on, kiss the car goodbye.

    RIP ~ to be so young to go out like that... wasn't there another HD incident that happened in north/central Jersey a few months ago?

    we're probably going to hear about it on Tues due to the vicinity.

    that's what happens when they scrapped the training program (Smith System A.G.K.L.M or the Fedex System S.A.F.E) & try to hire anyone with a pulse to do this job.

    I practice "SMOG" at every stop; w/ 3 kids and no life insurance, i stay safe on the road

    You sound like you are in your early 30's. Did you know that you can get a 20 year $500K term policy for around $40/month?

    A few years back I purchased a 30 year term 250k life insurance for $93/month . When it terms out I get all the money back.

    My policy has the same language.

    I'd say with your $100k salary that would be easy to do but when they make a 1/3 of that with no benefits it would be hard to just put food on the table. Maybe you would be so generous as to give him the $40. I mean do you really have to be a condescending troll on every post?
