Just for fun
All of the above. When I'm solo and doing a tight neighborhood I leave it open if it's cold. If I'm driving a while before the next stop and it's super cold I'll shut the door on the way in. Sometimes the door doesn't shut all the way in which case I'll brake check it.
I liked to brake check it when I had a helper or sup riding with just to keep them on their toes.
Depends on the route. Country miles ahead, the door gets shut. In town or a neighborhood and I 'll leave both doors open if I need to.
Both doors are opened in tight resi land. After awhile you don't feel anything... ups jacket off, radio up...
I got a writeup complaining of the driver door not staying open on the go the other day.
We've been in the teens and 20's lately so I've kept the driver door closed. But tight areas have the passenger door open. Thought there might be more brake checkers. Maybe I'm just more lazy!
I'm pretty sure UPS policy calls for the door to be closed to and from delivery area,although not really enforced.
That's a new one on me--never heard that before. It sounds like some BS some safety committee suck up would spout out.
More than once I was asked "how come UPS don't put doors on their trucks"? Usually by some blond.
Darn telematics really messing up me staying warm.
I'm told that by every on-road that does my yearly safety ride.
They make up crap more than anyone. That's where the safety committee gets their weird ideas. I would have to see it in some official policy book before I would believe them.
What would you guys do without the Committee? It's amazing you guys don't kill yourselves.
Close it when I get in. Only go out passenger side for all deliveries. My seat belt blocks driver door
When I was younger I left the passenger door open most of the day. Now that I'm older and have little tolerance for cold weather the door gets shut every time if deemed necessary.
Screw the time study!
Both doors open at all times
I don't get out the drivers door because it's not a method. Driver door closed all day passenger open unless traveling to next area.
