    this is happening more than ever. the reasons I think are less office time , more time getting mail ready at rear of llv. more deliveries in dark, caused by automation,start times rolled back to 8,830 ,and 9 am. more carriers on street longer, juggling 3 bundles of mail, makes it extremely hard to focus on surroundings when you have to eyeball so many different things. delivering when you should be having dinner, body gets tired and hungry, just natural to get sloppy. none of this matters to the decision makers cause they have been home for over 5 hours well you are getting run over in the dark.
