    I am not sure if it is cost effective. However, my route could not be completed with a 2wd postal vehicle. I have mountainous, muddy, ruddy dirt roads. I believe the postal policy of “one size fits all” approach to vehicles is the problem. Vehicles need to be assigned by need and type for different routes and areas. USPS should purchase RHD Jeep’s for some routes. Also, I believe employee retention would greatly improve with all routes being assigned vehicles. I like my POV, however, the rising cost and inability to find a cost effective replacement, are making me consider if this job is worth keeping. With the staffing shortage and most carriers working 6 days a week, then working on our POVs on our one day off, is unsustainable. You should consider if more lost employees is also cost effective due to this issue. I hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me if you want a more detailed understanding from the carriers perspective.
