A little heavy on the anecdotes and lacking some of the sources behind the data they collected. Article largely resounds as honest, definitely matches what I've seen/experienced, and brings up the important point that there seems to be a lack of responsibility and regulation around Amazon's shipping practices.

It would be better if the statistics for delivery vehicle crashes / pedestrian alterations was published for all delivery services in addition to Amazon. While I'm tempted to believe Amazon is worse than say UPS I don't actually have the data to compare. It's entirely possible that tragic stories have occurred with UPS, FedEx and UPS carriers.
