So what is your point? Are delivery drivers "more dangerous than ever?" Are other drivers "more dangerous than ever?"

What do you mean by 'drivers'. Is this a reference to all drivers on the road, just delivery drivers, or just drivers on the road that are not delivery drivers?

I have not clicked your link and will not click your link since I do not know you or trust you.

What is the point of this thread? If its to slam us drivers, then I will gladly put my driving record up against you and the person that wrote that article.

If its for some other reason, then you need to explain why this thread was started.

I second, third and fourth this statement.

I have now been in the delivery biz for 10+ years and in that time I have delivered roughly 40.000+ deliveries and driven 200,000+ miles between 3 different vehicles WITHOUT a SINGLE on-the-job accident or ticket/moving violation. I have only been stopped by the cops ONCE and that was because one of my headlights burned out while on shift and I did not have a spare to immdeately change it (got a nice warning but NO ticket),

Yeah I know that is no where near what say a regular route driver or over-the-road trucker does but still...... Heck most of the time the cops just leave me alone while I am on the job as I drive well within all traffic laws AND drive my vehicle as safe as possible manner.


I do NOT drive like the stereo-typical Digerino commercial depiction of a loser, stoner, idiot, sloppy, dirty, smelly, dumb-as-a rock delivery driver NOR do I look or act like that either (as do most of the drivers I know). This dumb and not so honest stereotype STILL persists for some odd reason.

Again, WHAT is the OPs point??????

It's an article written by a "MikeSyrSutton" username on a website that likely pays people to write articles so that they can get hits from search engines on a myriad of subjects. User who posted it here is named "BigMike" here.

This is pretty much blog spam that's not relevant to the site and I wonder why he came back to reply at all. Weird.

I noticed the same thing when I approved him. I disapprove several spammers every week. Butif this is spam, it was less overt.

"BigMike" , it's time to make your case or get banned from here for spam. The ball is in your court.
