USPS documents show 88 postal vehicle fires this year, but do not break down by type.  It also seems to blame at least some of the fires on unapproved modifications in the vehicles.

That’s 88 times too many. So scary!

Kathy Hovatter

So they are blaming carriers for using scanner holders as cup holders? ?

Nancy Uhde

MDD “chargers”? What?!

Nancy Uhde

As usual blame the carrier at all times.

Jill Lindgren

What carriers?

Larry N Smith

In our area they blame rubber bands hung on the blinker handle!

Nancy Uhde some carriers have chargers for the MDD (our scanners), which would have electrical connections in them, which could be short-circuited by spilling a drink in them.

Carriers can pay right after management reimburses for their mistakes.

Haha! That’s recycling!


They are chargers for our scanners. They aren’t to be used as cup holders since they have electricity running through them to charge the scanners but apparently some carriers are using them for cup holders.

Blaming the carrier for the splitter on the cigarette lighter is completely ridiculous. The absolute worst case scenario for that is blowing the fuse to the cigarette lighter. Jesus.

Hazard light switch was getting very hot. Told postmaster about 18 times before he finally grudgingly fixed it after about 2 months saying “I don’t see anything wrong, but I’ll fix it anyway” Well gee thanks.
