"Shake Your Mailbox" In October

Lapeer County Road Commission asks residents to prepare for winter by shaking their mailbox this month. A mailbox is the only object allowed by law that homeowners can place in the road right-of-way. The road right-of-way is typically 66 feet wide or 33 feet from the centerline of the road. The righ-of-way is maintained by county road commissions and is used for residential and public utility purposes. Over the years, a mailbox can rot or become wobbly. By grabbing and shaking it, a resident can know if it's secure. Snow coming off a plow going 35 miles per hour has surprising force and digging a mailbox out and reinstalling it in frozen ground is no picnic. The Michigan Department of Transportation and Lapeer County Road Commission have policies in place regarding replacement of mailboxes that have obviously been hit by a plow directly. However, road agencies are NOT responsible for mailbox damage caused by snow thrown when clearing the roadway.








Lapeer County Road Commission now has the option to add green lights to the vehicles in our fleet. Act No. 161 Public Acts of 2016 was approved by the Govenor on June 8, 2016 with an effective date of September 7, 2016.

(d) Flashing, rotating or oscillating amber or green lights, placed in a position as to be visible throughout an arc of 360 degrees, shall be used by a state, county or municipal vehicle engaged in the removal of ice and snow or engaged in other non-winter operations. This subdivision does not prohibit the use of a flashing, rotating, or oscillating green light by a fire service.

Pictured above, to the left, is a pick-up from Kent County demonstrating the green lights in a snow storm in November of 2014. The Ohio Department of Transportation, pictured on the right and below, began using the green lights on their fleet in December of 2012.
