Chicago Has The Worst Mail Delivery In The US

An audit of the USPS shows that Chicago has the worst overnight mail delivery in the country. From the Chicago Tribune:

The audit found that first-class mail sent between Chicago ZIP codes made it to the correct address the next day 91 percent of the time. The cities that fared best in the audit had deliver rates of around 97 percent.

The audit was for mail delivered between June and September of last year.

U.S. Rep. Danny Davis (D-Chicago), who heads a congressional subcommittee that oversees the Postal Service, said he has urged officials to do whatever they can to fix the delivery problems in Chicago.

Why not let Phillips Towing deliver the mail? That ought to fix it. —MEGHANN MARCO
