    Is UPS Finally Getting It? Top Exec Offers Some Evidence - Streetsblog

    Earlier this month, Thomas Madrecki, the director of Urban Innovation and Mobility for UPS, published an op-ed in Coord that called for “safer, less congested and more livable streets.” But the piece was definitely not a stinging rebuke of his own company, whose drivers block bike lanes, park illegally and double-park all over the city. So Streetsblog Editor Gersh Kuntzman reached out to the D.C.-based Madrecki to fill in the yawning gap between his piece and reality. Here is a transcript of that interview, edited only for length and clarity.

    They actually pay this guy Madrecki to come up with this cockamamie stuff?
    He should be writing for the Onion.

    Double parking is a temporary problem in that the UPS/FEDEX/AMAZON driver is only there to complete a delivery. If they were there for hours, or all day, I could see the point. Concessions should be made for the delivery provider. If that isn't forthcoming, deliveries where legal parking isn't available should be Held for Pickup. A different perspective for the complainant might change their attitude.
