Mailboxes May Be Hazardous To Your Health! - Texas Department of Highways - Video VH-81 - Crash test footage of rural roadside mailboxes demonstrates how box height, mounting and personalized design can be extremely hazardous to motorists: typically, the boxes and mounting posts penetrate the windshield. Research on safer mailbox support and mount designs is demonstrated, and the importance of a clear zone is emphasized. Acknowledging the emotional attachment of homeowners to their personalized boxes, the video stresses state regulation of roadside mailboxes and coordination between the Postal Service and highway agencies.
