Eleven Edison Mail Carriers Up For Safe Driving Awards


EDISON, NJ - Eleven U.S. Postal Service mail carriers will be honored Wednesday for, essentially, driving around the planet more than 40 times.

The 11 letter carriers will be presented with the National Safety Council's prestigious "Million Mile Award" for accomplishing more than 30 years of driving without a reventable accident, said the U.S. Postal Service. The 8:45 a.m. award ceremony will take place June 13 at the Main Post Office on Route 27 in Edison.

"Reaching this unique milestone requires 30+ years of service and an unwavering attention to safety," said the Postal Service. "To put it in perspective, you would have to travel around the earth 40.1 times to cover one million miles. The presentation of the National Safety Council’s Million Mile Award reflects the Postal Service’s commitment to safety and pride in its employees who provide excellent service, while safeguarding themselves and the neighborhoods they serve."
