Staying Alert while delivering within Residential neighborhoods and Apartment Complex.

843

While making deliveries within residential neighborhoods and apartment complexes delivery personal must stay alert at all times. There are many things that can happen which can cause serious consequences for the driver and the public at large. This will be a simple explanation as to why should you stay alert at all times and be aware of your surroundings.

As you can see from the picture is a simple cul de sac in which a driver can come into and not think of anything but getting that package off and moving along. However, the driver must take into consideration many things such as the kids in the street on bikes, the couple walking on the sidewalk, fire hydrate, parked vehicles to just name a few. Why?

These are all dangerous…. The driver must stay alert at all times when this is present on his/her route. Make sure to beep the horn and get their attention immediately when you enter this area or any place you see these signs.

STAY ALERT OUT THERE & BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS.

Here is another example of where to be careful and stay alert out there. Always pay attention when delivering within apartment complexes due to the constant movement of vehicles, pedestrians, children, and other vendors. One particular event is parked cars. Why? First, we never know if someone is in the car. Secondly, is that vehicle about to move. What should you do? Tap horn loudly is passing through and definitely scan your whole area upon making a delivery. Stay Alert. Be Aware at all times.

Although these are just a few remember to always use caution when delivering within residential neighborhoods. There are many moving items within your view at times, especially on certain holidays, such as Halloweens (all kids outside at night), or xmas. Lastly, I leave you with this last photo in which you are coming into a cul de sac with two parked cars on each side. PLEASE WATCH OUT WITH OUR MIRRORS. ALSO, DAMAGE TO OTHER VEHICLE.
