3 Things Your Mail Carrier Wants You to Know About Winter Deliveries
Bone-chilling temps and snow roared into South Dakota and the Sioux Falls Post Office would like to remind you of a few things.
- Customers are requested to clear snow and ice from pathways - including the entrance and exit from curbside boxes - so the carrier can approach the delivery point and not have to back up.
- Walkways to you door-side delivery point must be cleared and maintained to avoid falls.
- Steps are a hazard. Please keep them clear of ice and snow accumulation and in good repair.
Mail carriers are asked to use their best judgement on whether they can safely deliver with adverse weather conditions.
Did you know that mail delivery drivers are not allowed to dismount if the mailbox is blocked?
But alas, nothing lasts forever. At the time of this post, spring is 75 days away.
