I think it can be salvaged and fixed

It probably will be

Just needs a fresh coat of paint


Too much gish… Jerk reaction to see what item #21 is… #facepalm

No, I think this is the 21st one to go up in flames this year

Damn! Stay safe!

That is 21 that was covered by media/ social media. Whoes to say how many in little podink towns that didn’t get any coverage

Death traps !!!

Remember. Safety First!
Let that Mail burn! They care more about the Mail than the employee.

And another one burns..averaging one a week it seems..

Another one. ???

I think with all the LLVs catching on fire, they would really look into replace them … I have worked 22 years and that last 13 years I have heard oh we are going to get bigger and better LLVs … no consideration for front wheel drive , or even vents in the sides to get air to your body cause your sweating your butt off in the 100 or more weather !!! DUH HELLO PMG

What catches engine or fire wall?

Heather Kline this is what I was talking about.

Wendy Byrd Melisa Wallace Progress!!!!

Hell I look for mine to go any day now.

I think they could fix that and have it back on the route in a couple of days

Do these things have extinguishers on them?


I would bring my own if i drove one.

That’s one way to get new trucks


expect you to finish your troute and be back in time for the truck

that one is not burnt very bad, it will be back on the road in 2 weeks

At what point are they going to realize these things are extremely dangerous, suck it up and get rid of them!

If they do it before they have a viable replacement, they’re going to start forcing all rural carriers into POVs.


Right up the road from Anna! Michelle Ellis

Omg! Crazy!


Bad carburetors in the old vehicles. Common plomblem, known to mechanics and still thet send them out everyday. Be careful and report all vehicle oddities.

Wow that’s so scary, I hope the carrier is ok. Crazy that our Postmaster and Superviser think these accident can be prevented.

Hot mail.
