A lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for thr District of New Jersey on March 7, 2024, claiming a Jersey City car crash was caused by delivery quotas for Amazon drivers.
Acording to the lawsuit filed in the case of HARRISON v. AMAZON.COM INC., 2:24-cv-01892, Amazon requires its drivers to deliver as many as 250 packages in an eight-hour shift, which works out to a pace of less than two minutes per package. The plaintiff has alleged that the defendant driver, in his rush to make his delivery quota, parked illegally on the side of the road and then suddenly, and without any warning, executed a sharp left turn to leave the illegal parking spot.
