    I've got 6 tickets: 1 failure to yield, 2 speeding, and 3 careless operations. The three careless operations and the failure to yield resulted in accidents. I could make excuses for myself, but I doubt UpS cares who was in the right or wrong, just who has the tickets. These have all been within the past year. I've been working part time for almost 3 years, and have more seniority than most of the newer drivers that are being hired. I can drive stick, and I've got the right license, and I've been driving the trucks, so I'm comfortable in them. I also live in Louisiana, and there is no point system here, but I'm not sure if that matters. I've been putting my name on the bid list whenever it comes up, but my Union rep told me that I've got the option to go straight to the supervisors and ask to be sent to the class due to my seniority over the newer drivers. But do I have a chance, or should I wait it out? If I don't have a chance, how long do I have to wait to be considered again?

    Karma has it out for me. Also, I'm a bad driver.

    I'm working on being more careful. Also, I don't think I'm an extremely bad driver. One of the accidents wasn't my fault, the other guy rolled past a stop sign while I was turning, and the police said that he had right of way since he was going straight or something. The other three were stupid mistakes due to me being tired or switching lanes too carelessly on a wet road. I'd like to think I've learned from them.

    No they have to ride on car after accidents. Unless he would tell them how to have more accidents
