UPS had inducted 1,495 of its drivers into the Circle of Honor, an elite group of UPS drivers who have not had an avoidable accident for 25 years or more.
Made up of drivers across four continents, this new class has a total of 37,375 years of safe driving.
Collectively, active UPS Circle of Honor drivers have driven about 15 billion miles without so much as a fender-bender the company has said previously.

UPS and Its Drivers Understand and Promote Safe Driving
“All UPS drivers understand the important role rigorous training and safety protocols play in keeping them, and our communities, safe. Collectively, our drivers log more than 3.5 billion miles each year on roadways around the world, and our Circle of Honor drivers are among the safest on the road. I’m so very proud of what our Circle of Honor drivers represent,” Tomé added.
UPS began recognizing its safe drivers in 1923 when founder Jim Casey presented UPS’s first safe driving awards. This commitment to safety is a point of pride for the company and its drivers.
With the approach of Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April, UPS encourages all drivers to be more intentional about safe driving habits.
According to the CDC, nearly 3,000 Americans are killed each year in crashes involving distracted drivers. Worldwide, about 2.5 million car crashes a year are attributed to distracted drivers.
Last Year, UPS inducted 1,412 drivers into this elite group.
