Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
You would likely only get a request like that if the mailbox design is deemed as overly dangerous in the event that a car were to strike the mailbox. In other words, they're trying to avoid a situation were a mailbox could cause injury in a collision. I would contact the NYS DOT at (518)(###) ###-####and ask how you can appeal the decision. But bear in mind that when it comes to safety, or what they believe be a safety issue, you will probably need to do as instructed. If an accident were to occur, and somebody was injured as a result of a mailbox flying through a windshield, there would be trouble for not only you, but for the NYS DOT.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
