8/10/17 MEDFORD, Ore. – The U.S. Postal Service is looking to implement some new safety protocols.
These discussions stem from some issues mail carriers face in the rural areas of Jackson and Josephine counties.
The ideal situation for a letter carrier is a circular driveway or a driveway that has enough space for a vehicle to drive in, deliver and turnaround before heading back onto the main road.
An idea is to install a barcode on the back of the postal vehicles, which would require drivers to get out, scan it to verify they’ve checked their surroundings before proceeding out.
