School's Out! Watch for Children

As school is in summer recess, all employees are reminded to take extra traffic safety precautions. Children are at increased risk of transportation-related injuries from pedestrian, bicycle, and motor vehicle crashes this time of year. 

Tips on Backing:

ü  Backing always is a conscious decision, done of our own free will. No one backs up his or her vehicle by accident, although the act of backing may well cause an accident.
ü  Backing is inherently dangerous. Do not put yourself in a situation that requires backing.
ü  Backing accidents ALWAYS are preventable.
ü  Do not back your postal vehicle unless it is absolutely necessary. If you miss a delivery, park and secure your vehicle and walk back to make the delivery. Or go around the block.
ü  Never pull into a driveway that requires you back out.
