Safety Campaign Warns Pupils About Delivery Truck Dangers

The U.S. Postal Service is distributing materials to some 9,000 postal facilities nationwide this month to explain the risks of delivery vehicles to pre-kindergarten through second grade schoolchildren. The safety awareness campaign is being done by USPS and two of its unions, the National Association of Letter Carriers and the National Rural Letter Carrier's Association.

The material includes an animated 2-minute DVD in English or Spanish featuring two bird characters, Franklin and Benny. The theme, "Smart children stay away from the truck," is supported by the video, a poster, a coloring book, and stickers.

USPS notes that the dangers involving children playing near vehicles is a nationwide problem involving all types of vehicles, not just postal vehicles. The Kids and Cars organization offers resources at www.KidsAndCars.org to prevent this type of incident. School officials interested in having a Postal Service employee visit and present the video and other materials should contact their local postmaster.
