UPS Pays $1.3 Million to Settle N.Y. Safety Scandal

March 25, 2011: UPS paid $1.3 million to settle legal charges that the company knowingly put package cars in “serious disrepair” on the roads in New York State.

The investigation centered on nearly 150 package cars with cracked or rotted frames that were not taken out of service.

Brown paid $1.3 million in penalties, fines and costs, and agreed to have an independent inspector conduct vehicle inspections of UPS trucks in New York for the next five years.

“UPS knowingly endangered not only the lives of their own employees but the lives of the driving public,” said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
