Video: TV station gets USPS to solve disabled man’s postal problem

OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -Grabbing the mail is something most people take for granted every day, but it’s not that easy for an Overland Park man who is paralyzed from the waist down.

When Robert Wood moved to his new apartment, he discovered the mailbox was quite a distance from his apartment. He made requests to the post office in person, in writing and even sent friends and family requesting door delivery.

Eventually, Wood was granted a lower mailbox he could reach, but that didn’t solve his problem. So, after months of polite requests, he contacted KCTV5 News’ investigative unit for help.

    I’ve worked 41 years as a letter carrier and retired. It is so stupidity to postal regulations up to 67″ tenant lock for horizontal (or vertical) typed mail receptacle boxes. And the disability can’t reach their mail box. These postal managements don’t listen to workers or customers at out thought. It’s all they said never mind.
