Postal Carrier

  I would have flagged but I was too shaken up and dumb-founded to think to get his numbers. I was driving down Priest road in Tempe the other day and had changed lanes several times to avoid some drivers that were traveling at less than 30 MPH in the left lane by themselves with no one in front or behind them for at least a half mile on a two lane 35 MPH road (I usualy like to drive at 3 - 5 miles over the speed limit when I can because I find that I can make the timed lights consistantly this way). The traffic was really light except for this. After passing two of these drivers, I saw a large hauling truck a half mile or so ahead and realized that it was nearly at a stand-still in the left lane (I assumed that it was making a wide left turn or something). I prepared to switch to the right lane again and signaled well before the truck. Just as I came within 20 feet of the truck already straddling two lanes and having only slowed down to 35 or so, a postal truck jumped right onto the road directly in my only path forcing me to slam on the brakes and swerve back to the left to barely avoid hitting it. He seemed to speed up noticing this so I was able to quickly begin driving again and as I came up on his left I saw that he had a big fat cigar in his mouth and looked like he could have cared less that someone almost hit him( I think he did turn the next right fairly quick though). I was too shaky to be angry so I drove on down the road but when I thought of it later I couldn't stop being angry about it because I ALWAYS wait for BOTH lanes to clear before I enter the road because you can never predict when someone might change lanes without a signal yet I had and it still didn't matter.

You could report him to the local postmaster anyway. Time of day and name of street/direction of travel. Letter carriers have fixed routes they follow and you can almost set your watch by the time they are at a given location. Also report him for smoking in the postal vehicle! It's against postal regulations!
