Delivery riders whether they’re men or women are brave enough to willingly drive through heavy traffics in order to provide people with a courier, food services, and among others.
Being a 4-wheels driver is no different from delivery riders because we all drive or ride the same highways and encounter reckless drivers that don’t care about the other motorists.
Recent posts in social media have criticized such brave service providers for their made-up reckless driving, tardiness, as well as other types of excuses. As a matter of fact, some of these drivers have responded to their identifiable accounts of how their criticizers have been selfish and reckless.
So instead of humiliating them, why not show some respect to these riders, after all, they are decently working in order to make money.
Nevertheless, the following are some tips that you need to keep in mind if you encounter delivery riders.
Offer them sufficient Space to Filter
Today, the majority of delivery services rely on a motorcycle’s capability to jam heavy traffic circumstances. Thus, if you are riding a car, staying in the middle of your lane will more room for motorcycles to pass over on either left or right side.
But if you want, you opt for the side you would rather have by providing them more space on the other side.
Moreover, if you’re on a motorbike and a delivery driver is tailing you if possible maneuver to the side. Odds are, the delivery rider wants to pass you. Once you moved over, give the rider the sign to pass.
Understand their circumstances
Most delivery drivers have their service guarantees as well as delivery times to meet. As a matter of fact, it is not only about obtaining package or food somewhere, delivery riders are under time pressure as well. What’s more, some of such services support the driver is they are late. And in some instances, they offered more inducements if they make more trips.
Whether it is reasonable or not, all we can do to make their work a bit easier and understand their situation, in fact, this won’t cost you anything.
Offer them some slack
A lot of delivery riders put both their livelihood and lives at danger working for such services. Their motorbikes are their particular and the services provide only a small thing in a manner of benefits or insurance for such drivers especially when an accident takes place.
For Grab Food drivers, some of them utilize their own money to purchase the drink and food you have ordered. Simply because they don’t arrive at the specified time you will not get your orders. Instead, give them another chance. Because if you cancel it after they have already purchased them, there’s no way for them to reimburse it.
Always remember these riders have mouths or family to feed. So canceling it may possibly mean that their family will sleep with their stomach empty.
Nevertheless, there is no delivery driver who wants to become late or delayed on purpose. Usually, it’s out of the rider’s control.
