    It's probably not even the correct address. See what happens when you leave it running/light that third joint/get your flip-flop stuck on the gas pedal? Too funny.

    Trying to save the starter remember? And why is this not the only picture of ground vehicles I've seen like this? HOW does that even happen?

    I hope that was Fred's house.

    Maybe the driver was competing with this guy.

    He missed the front door. The garage doesn't count. The firemen are there to extinguish the cargo fire caused by the driver throwing his lit roaches through the open bulkhead door.

    more info on the OP's pic: it was a roll-away...

    lesson: always use your parking brake at every stop!

    Wow, I guess that's what insurance is for. The contractors I mean. Why are all these trucks in the position to roll into houses? Shouldn't they walk to the door? Looks like all these were nosediving into driveways.

    On most Ground vehicles, they most likely don't even work.

    I'm surprised this doesn't happen more.I can't imagine all the fuel that is wasted while the truck sits there idling.I've never seen such a blatant disregard for safety.It truly boggles my mind and the fact that this happens apparently everywhere means that this action is taught and the drivers are trained to do this.Everytime I pull up to a stop and the Ground guy is there idling I'm tempted to take the keys or move the truck.

    unless the sub-contractor paid FredEx to send them to that SAFE driver training class, these guys are mainly pulled from the temp peak season pool... hoping they got their training elsewhere... so i doubt that

    this pulling into driveways & leaving the engine running is up there along with wearing no seatbelt

    Ground drivers do whatever they feel like doing and (for the most part) get away with it. Express drivers would most likely be fired on the spot for the same infractions.

    FDX the home of double standards.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    The Express driver who I see most often during the day and I were at the same stop in a strip mall yesterday. I was parked on the right side of the road with my flashers on. He had pulled in front of me, on the wrong side of the road and partially in to the crosswalk. We would be fired on the spot but for him it was business as usual.

    Today I saw a Custom Critical truck pulling a small pick-up truck on I-95. Does FedEx now offer towing services?

    Aren't they contractors? Maybe it was his personal vehicle.

    probably delivering the Custom Critical truck to the contractor. Vehicle in tow is for the return trip.
