They just need a new uniform to match.
It’s been almost 35 years since the USPS debuted a new design for their mail trucks and they are in need of an overhaul to say the least.
With no air conditioning, lack of insulation, and some older trucks being a *literal* fire hazard, they definitely don’t seem fit for the “neither snow nor rain nor heat” kind of commitment for which the Postal Service is known.
Hence the “Next Generation Delivery Vehicle,” which looks adorably futuristic…
And also like it could have rolled out of the movie Cars.
But while the general public may see some humor in the design, it was actually created with the specific demands of mail carriers in mind.
Plus, the vehicles have gone through intense testing, ensuring that they will be able to withstand all terrains and weather conditions.
The project will cost over a billion dollars, which I guess means last summer’s campaign to save the Postal Service by buying their merch must have worked?
But regardless of cost, the USPS is an essential service and their employees deserve a safe and efficient work environment.
