Keep mail­boxes safe

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

With win­ter here, or al­most here, the Trans­port de­part­ment would like to re­mind peo­ple about the proper place­ment of road­side mail­boxes so they don’t in­ter­fere with road safety and main­te­nance. The mailbox must not be too close to the side of the road nor should it have a light re­flec­tor on it which might con­fuse drivers. It should be well-at­tached to its sup­port of wood or light metal, a sup­port that will buckle over upon im­pact.

The Trans­port de­part­ment is not re­spon­si­ble for dam­age done to mail­boxes dur­ing snow re­moval op­er­a­tions when they are not prop­erly in­stalled.
