US Postal Service ask Customers for Help this Winter in Reducing the Risk of Injury to Letter Carriers

USPS District Manager Deborah C. Essler is asking property owners to keep steps and walkways clear of snow and ice so the carriers can deliver or collect mail safely. Curbside mailboxes must have an approach that is snow and ice-free so drivers can deliver or collect mail without leaving their vehicles or leaning far outside their windows, which is dangerous in wet weather. They also need enough clearance to safely drive away from the boxes.
“Letter carriers in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont drive over 53,000 square miles to bring service to their customers,” Essler said. The USPS asks customers to be aware of letter carriers who delivery mail in their own vehicles alongside rural roads and on foot in urban neighborhoods after the sun has set.
