(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Washington, DC - September 30, 2010 - UPS (NYSE:UPS) is proud to stand with the U.S. Department of Transportation in support of policies that would effectively reduce the likelihood of serious, life-threatening injuries on the roads by discouraging distracted driving.

As the recognizable face of the world's largest package delivery and logistics company, UPS drivers travel more miles per day than almost anyone else on the road and the safety of those drivers and the general public is of the utmost importance. Distracted driving ranks among the most common and easily avoided mistakes a driver can make. Strong safety policies, prevention efforts and training can make the road safer.

"UPS is hardly a newcomer to safe-driving techniques and training and we do see this as a problem of increasing importance," said Allen Hill, senior vice president, Human Resources. "For more than 100 years, we have trained our employees to work safely so that they can reach their most important stop every day - home safely with their families."
