You wanna see bad drivers? Come to the Chicagoland area. UPS drivers are terrible here. And I'm talking the C Class trucks that deliver to homes. They speed, they cut you off, they drive recklessly just so they can finish their insane routes. I too drive a truck and one day I was passing by a side street that housed a UPS facility. A block away there it was. A UPS driver rear ended a truck. The UPS vehicle's grill was torn off, the front was bent; he didn't even make it a mile from base.
As I said I am a truck driver. What you and the public need to know is that we are overworked. We are expected to meet deadlines that require us to get from point A to point B in so much amount of time and then from point B to point C again by a certain date. Some drivers succumb to the pressure being put on them, but I'll be damned if I kiss my employer's *** and drive recklessly, endangering other drivers, myself, my driving record, and my cargo. I will get there when I get there. If they want to fire me, they can. I bet the Department of Employment Security would love to hear my reason for termination, "I was fired because I refuse to speed and drive recklessly in order to get to destinations on time."
