Video: Mailbox moved to safety after investigation airs on TV news

TYLER, TX (KLTV) –

In January, we first told you about a group of East Texans who had to cross a 65-mile an hour highway, just to get their mail.

Two senior citizens with health issues were among the residents that had to cross at the 10000 block of Highway 110, north of Tyler. Well, now, after six months of trying, one resident has been able to get the postal service to move her mailbox.

Syble Robles said she tried for months to get the attention of the postal service in hopes of getting her mailbox moved to her side of Highway 110.

"It was scary for me to cross that highway every day," Robles said.

Her efforts started with phone calls and writing letters, both went unanswered. She then reached out to State Representative Louie Gohmert, and even with the help of his office, she received a response, no, from the postal service.

So she called KLTV and she says that’s when she said everything changed.

    Why didn’t she just get a hardship note from her Dr? Sounds like whom ever in charge at that Local PO just didn’t want to deal with it. That’s not the normal! Glad it worked out for her thou…..

  • Surprise!

    It is the normal at my Post Office. We have our customers cross a six lane freeway.

    How would the person in the story even know what a hard ship is? Are you suggesting that this information was given to her?
