Steve Gosselin of Rindge, a United States Postal Service (USPS) letter carrier in Fitchburg, Mass., received his Million Mile Club plaque, a distinction given to a professional driver who has driven accident free for either 30 years or a million miles. The distance equates to two trips to the moon and back.
The USPS in partnership with the National Safety Council recognizes the safe driving records of its employees. When postal drivers are included in this exclusive club, it sends a clear message to the customer that letter carriers and all postal drivers put safety first when traveling the streets of the communities they serve.
Fitchburg Post Office honored Gosselin along with two other letter carriers for reaching this achievement. Gosselin’s advice for driving goes something like this: Imagine a traffic cop on your shoulder observing your driving.
