The U.S. Postal Service has taken the unusual step of releasing a set of helpful tips to help reduce the number of drivers in Florida who have been crashing their cars into post offices. This year so far, eight drivers have crashed into post offices in Central Florida alone



Local ABC affiliate WWSB7 reports that the tips include, "Avoid distracted driving; Proceed slowly and carefully when pulling in, and backing out, of parking spaces; Visibly check to see whether your foot is on the gas pedal or the brake pedal," and "Visibly check to see if the vehicle is in Park, Reverse or Drive."


This story made me giggle a bit. I never thought I would come across something like this. The US Postal Service has to release helpful tips in hopes that people wont drive into the building as often? Poor post office, what did they do to deserve this?

There's a list of the accidents on the article, and a brief description of each.


8/21/2012; Leesburg. Customer she said she was startled by something falling from the sky and accelerated into the post office lobby.

In June 2011, 89-year-old Phyllis Slaunwhite crashed her vehicle into a Florida post office, causing more than $250,000 in damages. Slaunwhite later told police she had blacked out and had no memory of the accident.


Oh, old people! When will you ever learn? Not surprised it's Florida with a problem.
