On Friday afternoon, our mail carrier left a note in our box stating, "I need 20 feet of clearance on each side of your mailbox."
I know he was refering to my vehicle which I park in the road in front of our house. I pull it as far up from the mailbox as I can and still keep it in front of our property. Since we have a pie shaped lot on a cul de sac, I can only get the vehicle about 10 feet away from the mailbox.
Here is what I don't get. We went through something similar 11 years ago when our household first went to more drivers than our driveway could hold. At that time, we were told by one source that the driver could not back up, and I needed to park a far forward as possible.
Since then, I have parked in the road whenever we have had a son or daughter living at home. That has been the last 11 years and the various mail carriers we have had have not complained. So now we have a complainer.
Has anyone had a similar situation or have any ideas how to deal with this problem?
