Video: Chesterfield VA residents says mail carrier is delivering frustration

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -Residents in one Chesterfield neighborhood say they’ve had nothing but bad mail service for the past year.

They say they’ve complained on the local and national level, but nothing’s changed, so they reached out to 12 On Your Side.Neighbors in the Greenfield subdivision say it’s a great place to live, except when it comes to the mail service.

“It’s bad enough that I don’t put things in the mailbox. I take them straight to the post office,” says one neighbor.

Another resident says she thought it was an isolated incident until a community message board had dozens of people saying the same thing: residents not getting their packages, getting someone’s else mail and, in some cases, damaged items.

    WOW, did you notice all the mailboxes that are blocked? How on earth can the carrier deliver the mail with all the junk around the boxes.

    FIRST OF ALL, DONT PLACE YOUR GARBAGE CANS IN FRONT OF THE MAILBOX. SECONDLY, DONT PARK IN FRONT OF THE MAILBOX. THE CUSTOMER IS REQUIRED TO PROVIDE CLEAR ACCESS TO THE MAILBOX. THAT MEANS THE CARRIER NEEDS A CLEAR PATH TO DRIVE UP TO, AND AWAY FROM THE MAILBOX WITHOUT HAVING TO GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE TO DELIVER THE MAIL. PEOPLE DONT REALIZE CARRIERS ARE EXPECTED BACK BY A CERTAIN TIME BASED OB THE AMOUNT OF MAIL AND THE NUMBER OF DELIVERIES EACH DAY. WE DONT HAVE TIME TO GET OUT OF THE TRUCK BECAUSE A CUSTOMER IS BLOCKING THE MAILBOX. ITS SIMPLE COMMON SENSE. WHEN I CARRIED MAIL IF A BOX WAS BLOCKED YOU DIDNT GET MAIL THAT DAY. SIMPLE AS THAT.
