    This is crazy. Wasn't my fault. I had a tier 3 accident same day I hit my first year of free accident. What to expect now ?

    If it wasn’t your fault then you should be good to go.

    Tier 3 and it wasn't your fault? Did you forget to clear a intersection and someone ran a red light?
     
  8. You could be stopped and someone hits you from behind and it's a Tier 3

    I believe that's a tier 2. Tier 3 is hit other in rear.

    If this was in Wilmington we got a message about it in the IVIS. Oncoming vehicle turned left in front of UPS truck.
     
  11. Isn't a tier 2 a side swipe?

    I'll have to find out but I think hit while parked/stopped is a tier 2.

    I don't you could be right but I thought it was we hit someone in the rear is tier 3.

    Been a couple weeks since I went through paid training before start time, but as I recall: tier 1 is strictly property damage, e.g., mailboxes, awnings, hit while parked, etc. Tier 2 is sideswipes. Tier 3 includes rear-end collisions, all intersection accidents, all cases of personal injury.

    Mgmt was all fired up during these training sessions because of a tier 3 at another building in the division. Apparently driver has 30 years seniority and about 30 safety incidents on record haha. Driver was leaving building, got distracted looking at a paper manifest, and rear-ended a preloader's car just outside the gates. Somehow kept going into the intersection and was then t-boned by another (non-UPSer) car.

    I’d blame the preloader

    I was blocking some lady’s driveway to deliver to her neighbor (nowhere else other than blocking the street) and she backed into me. I wasn’t even in the truck. UPS came to the conclusion that it was an avoidable accident.

    “I didn’t see you!” She said. Lady if you couldn’t see a big brown package car behind you then you definitely wouldn’t see a kid on a bicycle. Never even bothered to take a look. Learned my lesson, I just block the street now, no matter how angry people get.

    UPS tries to blame the driver no matter what, so watch out.
