    Looks like our driver was in the correct portion of the roadway.

    Car crashes head-on with UPS truck on Marco Island

    It is a busy road down there. I'm sure the driver will still be deemed to be at fault though. Wrong place, wrong time, your fault.

    He or she didn't expect the unexpected, so it will be the driver's fault.

    When will UPS finally realize that every time they rule these accidents “avoidable” a disgruntled driver is instantly created? I’ve seen it affect the attitudes of an entire center too.

    I've noticed anything that puts Big Brown in a negative light no matter how little it may seem, disappears.

    I've always joked, that an asteroid could fall from space and hit your truck and

    they would deem it avoidable.... because you didn't know what was on all 6 sides

    of your vehicle.

    Having the right of way is no excuse for an accident.
    I’ve heard it more than once.

    It used to be the space shuttle landing on you when they were still flying.

    They don't care because next year they are somewhere else screwing up.

    They always told us to drive "aggressively-----but under control". A classic "leave yourself an out" for them to charge you. .

    They would say “You didn’t clear the airspace.”

    Years ago I stopped for a school bus that was taking a wide turn into my lane. I came to a complete stop and was rear ended by a Jimmy Johns driver. That driver also got a ticket. My union steward was all over this one (and I didn't even ask him) and actually called the union hall for me on this one because they were going to deem it avoidable because I should have realized the driver behind me wasn't slowing down and I should have honked my horn to alert him. Not surprisingly, that's when I realized how management/this job was and I got a DGAF attitude after that.
