Why did the city snowplow hit my mailbox?
We have instructed all operators to be very cautious near mailboxes. In almost all cases it is the weight of the heavy, wet snow which moves mailboxes, not the truck plow. A properly installed mailbox will have the face of the box directly above the back of the curb and the shelf of the box 38 inches to 42 inches above the gutter line. Also, many mailboxes are not securely fastened.
