ANY TOWN USA -- As a Driver for the US Postal Service, through a private Transport Company
. Delivery of mail, on time was always of the greatest importance. However
the times for each pick up and delivery were so close, it would be difficult
to drive through areas of congested traffic, and still be on time. The
drivers and the company would be fined, if late, and written up.
To have on road break downs, traffic congestion, bad weather, DOT Inspect
ions, weigh scales, and distance, were all factors, which would make some
deliveries on time, next to impossible. There are many various types of
US Mail priorities, and routes. Then, you have the lateness of leaving the
US Postal facility, as another hinderence for on time.
Most drivers, with the Postal Service, have to run against the clock.
