    As a rural carrier associate assigned to POV routes, having to make sure my personal vehicle stays on the road with very little downtime is extremely stressful. The initial cost of a RHD vehicle is very prohibitive in retaining RCAs and the EMA is just barely adequate to pay for rising fuel costs and short notice maintenance. Constant stopping and starting is very rough on vehicle transmissions and fuel economy. Converting rural routes to postal vehicles would most certainly improve staffing and morale issues and allow both regular carriers and their substitutes to perform their job safer and more efficiently. Human beings perform their job much better when workplace stresses are reduced or eliminated.
