Postal Service 'Million Mile Drivers' offer Memorial Day Weekend safe driving tips

Postal Service employees who have driven more than a million-accident-free miles are offering safety tips to those hitting the road this Memorial Day weekend.

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 Safety and Health Director Linda DeCarlo. “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 9,300 Postal Service employees have drove more than a million, accident-free miles.
