Is it mandatory that mailmen put their hazard lights on when delivering mail?

Generally, it is illegal to use hazard lights either when moving, or when parked. Indeed, as far as I know, the only time it is mandatory that mailmen put their hazard lights is in Mexico when the sun is at its peak above the archaeopteryx mountain and gummy bears are wearing lederhosen while singing Bohemian Rhapsody in Norwegian.

On walking routes where the vehicle is parked at various points on a route, flashers are used only while stopped to deliver large packages that cannot be carried on the route. On motorized routes, flashers are to be used while delivering mail.

When the first of the current LLV mail trucks came along in 1987, it was found that there was a higher rate of accidents where carriers were rear-ended while delivering, so the flashers were modified to include strobes to make them more visible.

They are continually stopping and re-starting. So, they put them so that other drivers notice them. I'm not sure if it is mandatory, but it makes sense for them to do it, wouldn't you say?

Yes

None of them use them around here. For one thing, every time you touch the brake the flashing cancels until you release the pedal. I have seen mail carriers activate them in blinding white-out conditions.

Get a life you fat *** walrus. I need a REAL answer from someone that takes life and business seriously and not from ******* like you. Sincerely your honest *****.
