The United States Postal Service recently honored two postal carriers for driving 1 million accident-free miles during the course of their careers.

Greg Burditt and Edelia Diaz have a combined 68 years delivering the mail and were inducted this month into the National Safety Council’s Million Mile Club.

The drivers also received a plaque from the National Safety Council.

Burditt and Diaz were recognized during a ceremony that took place in San Leandro.

The million-mile award is given to drivers who have driven 1 million miles or have completed 30 years of driving without being involved in a preventable motor vehicle accident.
