Build the base out of 6"x6"x3/8" steel sq. tube, with the main leg sunk 6' in the ground. That will last you.

They've been hit twice in the same location.



Move them.

In theory that sounds great but if someone gets hurt hitting your mail box, I think they can sue you.

We the mail boxes on 4" square poles in buckets filled with bricks. Easy to put them back up if they are hit.

I don't want anyone getting hurt from hitting our mail box. If there was a way to rip out the under carriage of their car...that wouldn't make me sad...

They were moved. Postmaster said they have to be where they are so the delivery person won't get hit delivering the mail.

Thank out new best friend neighbor Walgreen's.:stan3: :stan3:

BTW: you are sounding like CC.

I don't think so. I think they'd end up with a Basic Speed Law violation for losing control of their vehicle, which basically nullifies crap like that because they were found guilty of wrongdoing.

I'm not suggesting moving them away from the road - just to a different point along your frontage.
