While I do agree that some of the mailboxes locations are unsafe, they went overboard with the criteria. My elderly parents now have to walk about 1/2km on a steep hill to get their mail. All things considered equal though, I don't think the practice of the rural delivery drivers operating their cars on the wrong side of the road is very safe either. It can get pretty scary when you meet a car driving the wrong way in the fog or a blind curve.

There are dangerous mailboxes in rural raeas along the road. Workers should be able to drive to the box, stick their hand out, put mail in the box and drive off. When the mailbox is on the shoulder of a crumbling bank the carrier driver could potentially role his car into the ditch. When there is a poor sight line getting to and from the box in the the car the driver could easily get into an accident with an unseen civilian car passing by. Likewise, drivers need to get in and out of the car safe just like drivers have ot get to a door safe in urban areas. Oh, and then there are rusty mailboxes that could be a heath hazzard. Perhaps, when the dandergous mailbox was put up it was ok, but it has worn, the ground has crumbled, trees to block vision have grown, and traffic flows have changed and they are no longer safe. I have delivered many flyers in rural areas and see the point the Canada Post Corp is making.

The day has passed for the CUPW. Always using misinformation to try and sway the public. In 5 years CP will look a lot different.

Home owners can always look at where their mailbox is located and determine if any hazards exist, and illiminate the hazard. Perhaps moving the mailbox may be necessary if its location poses a problem, or clearing the area of debris. This will force CP to reconsider as the workplace safety issue will have been illiminated. Problem solved and, mail delivery continues. Most workplace safety issues can be resolved with a little thought to the problem.
