Denver, CO, Downtown Station recently held a congratulatory celebration for nineteen city carriers who received the National Safety Council’s Million Mile Award. The safe driving award is granted to drivers for having driven the equivalent of one million miles, or 30 years, without a preventable accident. Acting Colorado/Wyoming District Manager Rick Pivovar called the recognition “unprecedented.”
“I’ve never heard of one place with so many safe drivers at once,” said Pivovar. “You are to be commended.”
Denver Postmaster Mark Talbott noted that the accomplishment is especially complimentary of the fact that the carriers deliver in a crowded metropolitan space.
“You make us proud,“ said Talbott.
