    Laughable as I watch carwash park pkg cars in front fire hydrants and in fire lanes

    all over the facility. Mechanics too. With nary a concern. And as I watch 0 time

    experience on roads teach 0 time experience rookies. Why in the world would

    fire departments use our safety model? No way any of these folks have ever looked

    at what really happens day to day. Oh, our "Smith model" looks good on paper,

    but that's not what is happening.

    You mean the "Smith System" ?

    UPS tries to BS people into thinking "they" invented it.

    Every trucking company uses it....

    Of all people and the many many discussions of safety, I can't help you. But for the others-

    It seems ironic that fire departments would try to use UPS as a guide for safety because of

    at least one example I gave of blocking FIRE HYDRANTS and FIRE LANES. See? But then

    fire/emergency vehicles routinely run stop lights and signs. Just like our drivers.

    The guys in your building are slobs. Are you saying this is a company-wide issue based on your experience?
