Eight Lakewood USPS Letter Carriers Join ‘Million Mile Drivers’, For Driving over 1,000,000 accident-free miles (PHOTO)

USPS Lakewood Letter Carriers Marc Roman, Osvaldo Berrios, Loretta Argento, Adriene Amewudah, James Velicky, Frank Raczynski, Dennis Hill and Vincent Calarco Jr. have joined the thousands of Postal Service employees who have individually driven more than a million, accident-free miles. The carriers received recognition during a ceremony on Friday, Oct. 18 at the Lakewood Post Office.

How did they do it?

· Drive defensively — expect the unexpected.

· Maintain a safe distance of one car length for every 10 mph between you and the car in front of you.

· Be courteous, use turn signals and obey all laws.

· Keep your options open — have a “what to do if I’m cut off” strategy.

· Turn off mobile devices when driving — no cell phones or texting.

“Safe driving is no accident,” said U.S. Postal Service District Manager Jim Drummer. “The safety of our employees is our top priority, and we are proud our comprehensive safe driver training program is second to none.”

According to the National Safety Council, more than 30,000 Postal Service employees have achieved a distinction most people never approach in their lifetimes — driving more than a million, accident-free miles. No other business comes close.

The nation’s 31,000 plus Post Offices are linked by nearly 232,000 vehicles — the world’s largest civilian fleet. More than 341,000 letter carriers and truck drivers log more than 1.2 billion miles annually when delivering to America’s 158.6 million addresses.

Since 2005, over 30,000 Postal Service professionals have driven more than a million miles without a single accident. Reaching this pinnacle requires a safe attitude that entails driving 1 million miles or 30 years without a preventable incident.
