When will they pull these dangerous vehicles? It looks bad to send us out in them and it violates all kinds of safety codes. People won’t want to use Usps , because we fry their mail!! Where’s the responsibility to the employees and customers?

EVERYDAY!!!!! But they CARE about the carriers SAFTEY?!? But Paris wants to CRY about freaking RUBBER BANDS on the floor of the vehicle??????? SMH!

Chad Howard Roberts, and this is what they’ll have me delivering out of on Sunday.

You probably don’t have the actual numbers because they’re put out and towed, i.e. no report.

Way too many!


If the was happening with a major car manufacturer the government would demand a recall.

Send to OSHA. If they try to put an llv on your route fight it. We need to have documentation on every single one to show OSHA and have then stop this reckless, callused attitude by upper management towards their own employees.

I think they are not all being reported because the Postal Service doesn’t want carriers to know they are death traps! If these were privately owned vehicles…the Federal government would be calling for them all to be pulled off the road.
Regardless of what they say…the Postal Service does not care about us!

Your union is at fault also.

That is way too many get these things they call trucks off the road and keep the carriers safe!

My truck on the Phoenix news. I’m in Parker AZ.

Hey Kathy, do you remember what month this was? Thanks for sharing.. I will add it to my list

Ruralinfo.net Are they replacing these LLVs?

Ruralinfo.net June 25 ,2016.

Sharon Beth mine was replaced with a broken down van that would not start after about an hour of use….. Waiting for a replacement LLV as soon as City side resolves their issues…. Yeah , I won’t wait that long ……….

I just commented on a post I saw just before this wondering if there were any statistics on frequency.

What is cause of these fires?

We have had 3 llvs burn here in yuma arizona in the last year or maybe it was 4 . lost count .

This stay must of been on January 1st

I’m surprised mine hasn’t caught on fire yet. Its a piece

I wonder why we do not get any Union or Association support with this fire issue?

NALC and NRLCA, how about filling in a NHTSA complaint form on behalf of all your members!

I filed a complaint for the benefit of all Mail Carriers driving LLV’s. I don’t know if it will help, but NHTSA has the link posted about the fires this year in my complaint.

If anyone else wants to file a complaint a vehicle number is not needed. Just type “Grumman” in the Make, Model, Year field and USPS Vehicle pops up.

Maybe if a few of us fill out the form NHTSA will take notice and ask USPS to install fire extinguishers…

In our pov we had to have fire extinguisher

Hey everyone, please share for those that I have missed.. Thanks

Don’t see one listed for Okeechobee fl

They should at least supply us with fire extinguishers

But the USPS “cares” about employees SAFETY???

Preventable accidents. You’re fired.


Too many to list. Goverment will not investigate.

Don’t see the one in Vernon, New Jersey?
