Is your Mailbox ready for winter?

IS YOUR MAILBOX READY FOR WINTER?

Did you know that the location of your mailbox along the roadway can affect the efficiency of both mail service and snow plowing operations?  That’s right – if your mailbox is not accessible to the carrier due to snow buildup, or if it’s not properly located along the roadway, you may have to pick up your mail at the post office.

PennDOT allows property owners to place mailboxes within the limits of the right-of-way out of respect for the U.S. Postal Service, but because those boxes are in the right-of-way, damages are the responsibility of the property owner.

Normally, if a box is placed as far from the shoulder of the roadway as the carrier can reach from a vehicle, and the mailbox rests on a firm support, the box should be able to withstand the windrow of snow from plowing operations.  The face of the box should be four (4) feet from the roadway, the box itself should have a strong support, and you may want to use reflective tape to make it easier to see during storms or dark hours.

Plowing operations can push snow against or in front of mailboxes, limiting access and perhaps causing damage to supports.  If the mailbox support is within the highway right-of-way, it is the responsibility of the owner.  Check your box and support often and clear snow from around the box.


Whether or not we want to think about it, winter will eventually come back to the Poconos.  Please remember that plowing or throwing snow on the roads or on someone else's property is both illegal and dangerous.  Violators will be cited by both Sierra View Association and the Township.

Deer Removal

posted Nov 14, 2018, 8:52 AM by SierraView Association   [ updated Nov 14, 2018, 9:12 AM ]


As we get into the heart of deer accident season, here are some facts and tips to keep in mind:

v  The odds of hitting a deer with your vehicle in Pennsylvania are 1 in 63.


v  For comparison, the odds of being a twin in North America are 1 in 90, and your odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in approximately 292,000,000.


Insurance companies offer these tips to avoid animals in the road:

v  Stay alert. Pay attention to deer-crossing signs and be cautious in areas near woods or water.

v  Use high beams. Flicking your high beams on a deer in the road may cause the animal to scurry away. High beams also help illuminate dark roads.

v  Don't swerve. If a deer-car crash is unavoidable, maintain control of your vehicle and don't veer off the road.

v  Brake as necessary. If you can avoid hitting the animal, reduce your speed, honk your horn and tap your brakes to warn other drivers. If there are no drivers behind you, brake hard.

v  Remember peak season. Deer crashes happen most during October through December, which is hunting and mating season. Collisions are most likely to happen in West Virginia, Montana and Pennsylvania and Iowa.

v  Remember peak activity times. Watch for animals in the road between dusk and dawn.

v  Watch for herds. If you see one deer, there are probably more nearby.

v  Forget those whistles. No scientific evidence supports that car-mounted deer whistles work.

v  Wear seat belts. And always obey speed limits.
