Vetting FEDEX Ground and FEDEX Home Delivery Drivers since they are NOT company employees

The concern about terrorists using trucks to inflict harm on the public raises serious questions about who has access to trucks, particularly large ones that are taken for granted when seen every day on our streets. FEDEX Ground and FEDEX Home Delivery drivers are NOT required to have a CDL(unless they drive a tractor trailer) and may not be undergoing a rigorous background check because they are NOT employed by FEDEX but by independent contractors whose standards for hiring can be very lenient. A serious verification process, WITH SUBSTANTIAL PENALTIES, for new and existing FEDEX drivers is needed to root out and ensure that contractors are not employing someone who will use the FEDEX truck as a weapon.
