    Attention drivers. Could you please stop checking "We can leave your package on the next weekday if you sign the back of this notice" with a sig required. No, we can not. They have to be there to physically sign for it. Amazing how many drivers do not know this.

    If I'm on the same route all week I'll try SDN on the first attempt just to know. I wish there was a faster way to know than hitting SDN, typing in false letters then voiding and re-sheeting.

    Can't write on the new pos notes, so, that's how it rolls.

    Heard of a driver getting fired for doing this and by passing the sig required with their own

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We check that box for delivery areas where we cannot DR.

    You are right in that it can not be used for signature required packages .

    Billy Ray God, help us all.....

    Which begs the questions: What do those drivers write on the signature pad when they retrieve the delivery notice the following day?

    Yes that is correct. Just talking about sig required packages. I have covered routes the following day on routes where guys have been driving 20+ years checking that box. Just makes me wonder how many drivers are forging signatures on their pads. No bueno.

    Hey man.....some drivers aint got time for crap like that! That requires too much time and effort. LOL! Its the same ones that don't have time to scan their misloads. Or scribble out their PALs for send agains. Or leave apartment deliveries at the offices. Stuff like that.

    So I know before hand whether or not to check the "can leave if signed" option.

    The problem is on the old info notices the first box was for signature required and the second box was for SDN release. Now some desk jockey f'ed it up and drivers aren't reading the new info notices or are in the habit of checking off the first box. The best way to remedy this is to talk to the driver, they probably aren't even aware of their mistake.

    Recently I've had more than one customer check that box themselves and then sign the notice.

    Sorry it doesn't work that way.

    I'll circle "must be here" and scribble through the signature lines on the back. Customer just signs in the access point box. Smh. NI2.

    I'm going to start marking that new notice with a king size sharpie... Might not be able to read it but the customer doesn't read the damn thing anyway...

    So you're looking for no DR stops? I only have one such stop on my entire area.

    I love when I cover a route, and there's a signature required send again, and the bid driver doesn't bother to properly fill out an info notice, and I'm the jerk that doesn't leave the package because their signature on the info notice isn't any good...

    What? No... When I come upon a No DR stop and nobody is home I hit SDN to see if the "Clarify Signature" thing comes up. If it does I check the "Can be left if you sign the info notice" option. If it doesn't I check the "must be here to sign" option.
