Does PennDOT replace and/or reset mailboxes that are knocked down by snowplows?
A.In all cases, we try to avoid damaging anyone’s property. However, mailboxes are often placed in the state’s legal right-of-way, which means that the Department of Transportation is not liable for damages to them caused by snow removal operations. We suggest property owners ensure their mailbox rest on a firm support so it will be better able to withstand the windrow of snow from the plow. For further information contact your local county office. Q.
