(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Transportation is advising residents living along state and U.S. Highways to take steps to prevent their mailboxes from being damaged by snowplows and the snow they push off the roads.

INDOT suggests placing a 6 to 8 inch piece of reflective tape on the mailbox to help snow plow drivers see it at night.

Also, inspect your mailbox to make sure it's firmly supported in the ground.

And, if possible, avoid plastic mailboxes.

Some plastic mailboxes tend to shatter in cold weather.
