Possible plan for the postal delivery woes

Published: Friday, Jan. 31, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

In a ZIP code area where there are six or more carrier routes, would it be possible to have one of the routes down on Monday, a different route down on Tuesday, a third route down on Wednesday, and so on through the rest of the week?

This arrangement would allow having approximately one-sixth fewer carriers, one-sixth fewer vehicles, one-sixth less vehicle maintenance, and eventually less pension obligation.

I think that this arrangement would save a lot more money, instead of shutting down all of the routes on Saturday.

Would this alternating arrangement be doable, or would there be too many unforeseen problems?
