During any significant snowfall the goal of the Township Road Crew is to clear or remove all snow from the roadways in order to provide all motorists with safe and passable roadways. It is imperative to remember that the driver of the plow has additional obstacles in their visual field and often cannot see you. Please give them plenty of space and do not try to pass them unless there is an emergency.
Penn Township is not responsible for damage to mailboxes caused by snowplows since mailboxes are erected on the right-of-way at the property owner’s risk. Mailboxes should be placed a minimum of 4 feet from the blacktop. This will help prevent damage to your mailbox and to Township equipment during snow removal. Please feel free to contact the Township with any questions on mailbox placement.
PennDOT suggestions to reduce the possibility of mailbox damage:
Please remember that higher speeds are often necessary to contend with heavy, wet snow. Taking steps to ensure the visibility and stability of mailboxes will help snowplow operators and postal carriers continue to deliver quality service in winter.
