Lehigh Acres letter carrier Tami McCormack received the Million Mile Safe Driver Award.

The Million Mile Club is part of the Safe Driver Award program created by the National Safety Council. The Safe Driver Award is the trademark of the expert driver and is recognized as the nation's highest award for professional safe driving.

"We're proud and thrilled to present this award," Manager Post Office Operations Leroy Middleton Jr. said. "The safety of our employees and customers is a top priority. Driving for the Postal Service is a privilege that requires all drivers to demonstrate safe driving practices throughout their careers."

Since 2005, when records were established, more than 6,000 postal employees have been recognized for driving at least 1,000,000 miles without a single accident.

The Postal Service has the world's largest civilian fleet with approximately 220,000 vehicles. Close to 350,000 letter carriers and truck drivers log more than 1 billion miles annually when delivering to America's more than 154 million addresses.

Phil Wiebold is a spokesman for U.S. Postal Service.
