Did you ever see that picture that was circulating around the internet a few years ago of the aftermath of a UPS package car and a Fed Ex "Courier" colliding? It had the UPS truck sitting upright with minor damage and the Fed Ex truck was laying on it's side next to it and appeared to be mangled. There were a couple of firemen in the picture. Someone had typed "We Win" at the top. Where did you get your picture at?
I hope all of you drivers do wear your seatbelts. Several years ago a driver out of the Chicago area died when his package car tipped over. He was not wearing a seatbelt and fell out of the truck. He was killed instantly when the package car fell on top of him. So please, wear your seatbelts.
IT IS BEYOND ME WHY ANYONE WOULD NOT WEAR A SEATBELT IN A UPS TRUCK OR A PRIVATE VEHICLE. I HAVE DRIVEN 11 YEARS AND RACED FOR ABOUT 13, I HAVE FRIENDS IN THE RACING BUSINESS WHO WEAR THE REQUIRED 5 POINT HARNESS RACING AND THEN GET IN THIER PRIVATE VEHICLE AND DON'T BUCKLE UP BECAUSE THE "LAW" SAYS THEY HAVE TO! I CAN THINK OF BETTER WAYS TO PROTEST A LAW THAN PUT MY LIFE IN JEOPARDY ON THE ROAD WITH THE EVER GROWING IDIOTS THEY ARE GIVING LICENSES TO THESE DAYS!
ANOTHER THOUGHT, SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT UPS, I DROVE DUMP TRUCKS AND OTHER COMMERCIAL RIGS BEFORE UPS AND WAS ACCIDENT FREE. WHEN I WENT THROUGH THE DRIVER TRAINING I THOUGHT SOME OF THE STUFF WAS SILLY, BUT I BET I HAVE AVOIDED 100'S OF ACCIDENTS OVER THE YEARS BECAUSE OF IT. I USE IT EVERYDAY AT WORK AND IN MY PERSONAL TRUCK. I GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE, THE UPS METHODS WORK AND ALL YOUNG DRIVERS SHOULD USE THEM EVERYDAY! IT JUST TAKES 1 SECOND AND 1 MISTAKE TO DIE ON THE ROAD.
interesting point in regards to seatbelts. Tell your friends to go to your local DMV, and just watch the people getting re-newals without a drive test, it's pretty easy to do and might spark some thought.
