He May Be an Unsafe Driver

You may not think of pizza delivery as a hazardous occupation, but the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks it as the ninth most hazardous job in the United States. The select group of top 10 most hazardous jobs includes roofers, aircraft pilots and logging workers. This isn't because of the risks involved navigating your porch steps in the dark, either. Much of it is driving related; so much so that some insurance carriers refuse to write personal policies for pizza delivery drivers. Chances are that at some time or another, you or someone you love will be on the road with an underpaid, harried speed demon who's trying to shave a few seconds off a pizza delivery -- even if it means putting your life in jeopardy to do it.
