The LRRB has produced a brochure about the hazards of mailboxes, applicable laws and acceptable installations. A related report includes example guidance materials from the City of Eagan for proper urban mailbox installation.
Using a series of dramatic crash-test clips, this video (produced by the Texas Department of Highways) illustrates the potential dangers of mailbox installations on high-speed roadways, and suggests safer, cost-effective alternatives to standard wood posts and other designs that penetrate windshields on impact.
