Defensive driving

Who knows what the other driver will do?

Motor vehicle accidents are a major source of serious personal injury and financial liability for USPS employees. Drive defensively. This goes beyond knowing the rules of the road and the basics of driving. The risk of collision is reduced by anticipating dangerous situations, hazardous conditions and the actions of others by practicing driving techniques like the two-second rule — keeping a safe distance behind the vehicle in front.

Driving defensively can save lives and reduce injuries and associated costs.

And that’s smart safety!
