- Place reflective material on the side of the box visible to approaching traffic. Also, 4 in. high letters to identify the address is recommended to assistemergency vehicles.
- Mailbox post size must not exceed 4” x 4” for a wooden post of 2” diameter for a steel pipe post for roadside barrier safety. Posts that are more substantial in construction are considered “deadly fixed objects” and are not permitted within the Town way.
- Mailboxes should be installed at least 42” high to provide clearance for the plow wing as shown in the picture. We recommend of an extended arm type post with a free-swinging suspended mailbox. This allows snowplows to sweep near or under boxes without damage to supports and provides easy access to the boxes by the carrier and customer.
