Item Detail
Roadside Design Guide, 4th Edition, Chapter 11: Erecting Mailboxes on Streets and Highways

Chapter 11 of the AASHTO Roadside Design Guide deals with privately owned mailboxes, mailbox supports, and mailbox turnout designs. Highway safety is the primary reason for a transportation agency to become involved in this type of design. Limited data exist for vehicle-mailbox collisions because most record systems do not specifically isolate these types of crashes. However, the Fatality Analysis Reporting System showed 294 deaths in 2008 in which an impact with a mailbox was the first harmful event. Although this number includes crashes in which the mailbox may not have been the direct cause of the fatal injuries, it is significant because it is associated with an unnecessary hazard.

Because many jurisdictions incorporate this chapter by reference into their mailbox regulations, the information in this chapter is frequently of interest to non-engineers and private citizens. Consequently, AASHTO makes this chapter available for purchase separate from the rest of the AASHTO Roadside Design Guide at a reduced price. Its content is identical to that found in the full book.
