PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS ARE CAUSED BY DELIVERY VAN DRIVER'S TIME CONSTRAINTS IN THE UPPER WEST SIDE MANHATTAN

Posted by Edward Lemmo | Sep 08, 2021 | 0 Comments

On June 30, 2021,  a  delivery van crashed into a 36 year old pedestrian at West 73rd and Broadway on the  Upper West side. Manhattan.  The injured pedestrian was transported to St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital with head trauma, in critical condition.  It was reported that the uniformed DHL driver was interviewed by the 20th Precinct police officers and  the investigation showed  a blood alcohol level below the legal limit for a DWI , but the man was charged with vehicular assault and driving while impaired. 

In another pedestrian knockdown case, a 71 year old bicyclist was killed by a UPS truck driver the day prior on the Upper West side. 

The common thread in these cases is that delivery driver's jobs depend upon efficiency and sometimes they cut corners and drive too fast or reckless to make their scheduled deliveries. 

The law should require that these drivers be deemed employees of these companies and not independent  contractors , so that the companies can be hurt  in their pocket books for not properly training these drivers  and  forcing them to adhere to schedules which cause speeding, and reckless driving.
