Why does the snow plow keep knocking over my mail box?

Mailboxes should be set back at least three feet from the curb to avoid being in the direct line of plowed snow. It is the homeowner's responsibility to keep the snow clear around their mailbox and to keep their mailbox in good repair so the weight of the snow from the plows will not knock the box over.  See the U.S. Postmaster guidelines for securing installing a mailbox.
