Sacrificing Safety For Speed
Many delivery vehicle accidents boil down to one central factor: company policies that put delivery schedules above the safety of the public.
You may remember ads from fast-food companies touting the speed of their deliveries. For example, Domino's Pizza once promised delivery in "30 minutes or it's free." The ads were discontinued due to personal injury lawsuits arising from accidents caused by drivers rushing to make deliveries. Jimmy John's, while not promising delivery in a specific time, promises "Freaky Fast Delivery." Other companies may have delivery schedules that can be met only if drivers engage in unsafe practices such as speeding.
