Runaway LLV

This is an amazing video from a security camera. The carrier stops at a gas station, goes inside with the mail,and meanwhile his vehicle slips into reverse and loops around the gas station, out onto the highway, and back again. The carrier stops the vehicle just inches away from the gas pumps.

We were lucky this unmanned LLV didnt turn into an unmanned space flight from an explosion.

Think how many people could have been injured.

Stop the engine.

Set the park brake.

Easy.

What an EXCELLENT example of "what could..." I made all my carriers watch it. I think they were impressed into rethinking their practices

Wow, Is that KITT? (Knight Rider). It's the Postal Service top secret - SMART LLV.

He not only left his vehicle running, he left the door wide open and unsecured! How long has this person been a carrier???
