Stay Away From the Truck

An eagle named Franklin, and his sidekick bird friend Benny, are featured in a public service announcement (PSA) being sent to more than 500 television stations nationwide to help prevent injuries and deaths caused when children get too close to delivery vehicles according to a USPS news release.

The 30-second PSA features fast-paced humorous action to make children and parents aware of how important it is to always “stay away from the truck.” It is part of a broader child awareness safety program from the Postal Service and two of its unions, the National Association of Letter Carriers and the National Rural Letter Carrier’s Association.

The safety campaign targets pre-kindergarten through second-grade school children and includes a longer animated video and other materials to use in a school setting. Additional information on the school materials will be available in August.
