Sound Off: Is it legal to park in front of mailboxes? If there is a car parked in front of a mailbox, does the carrier have to stop and get out of the truck to access the mailbox, or can they skip it?
Parking in front of a mailbox is perfectly legal within Lawrence and Douglas County as long as cars are allowed to park along the street in the area. However, park there at your own risk. The U.S. Postal Service does not require employees to exit their vehicles to put mail into obstructed mailboxes. So unless you want to miss out on your mail, or anger the owner of the mailbox you are blocking, find a different parking spot.
