Ice T scolds Amazon after claiming he almost shot driver during delivery  4 Weeks ago

Source:   USA Today  

Amazon might want to consider placing more of its delivery drivers in uniforms, based on a comment from one of its higher-profile customers.

Ice T,  the rapper who later became a TV star on "Law &Order: SVU," posted a tweet on Tuesday claiming he almost shot one of the tech giant's drivers who was "creeping up to my crib" the night before to complete a delivery. 

"Message To Amazon: Now that you have regular people making your home deliveries.. Maybe they should wear a Vest with AMAZON DELIVERY on it," said Ice T on Twitter. "I almost shot a MF creeping up to my crib last night."

In a follow-up tweet, Ice T said he wasn't mad at the delivery person but noted it's not safe for the drivers to operate without some type of uniform.

Amazon customer service reached out to Ice T on Twitter, saying his comments would be escalated to the company's logistics team for review.

Dave Clark, senior vice president of worldwide operations at Amazon, also responded, saying "lots of innovations" are in the works related to Ice T's concerns, as well as current features allowing customers to track their packages via map.

Amazon could not be immediately reached for comment.

Among the service Amazon offers is its Flex program where participants are treated as independent contractors eligible to deliver packages. According to a FAQ on the program, drivers can choose their attire when making deliveries.

The Flex program is part of a wider delivery network Amazon has employed to compete with rivals such as UPS and FedEx. Earlier this month, Amazon said it was expanding its delivery service program, encouraging current employees to start their own delivery business.
