My 10th grade history teacher loved to tell the story of how punk kids would drive their pick-up down his street when he was young and slam their door into his family's mailbox and knock it over.

After about the 4th time, his dad decided to install a new mailbox. This mailbox was dug 5 feet into the ground, had a metal pole (with wood around it to hide the pole), and concrete poured in. One day they're all sitting around inside and they hear a really loud crunching noise outside. They go out and there's a door to a Chevy wrapped around the mailbox and two teenagers dazed and wondering what the hell happened.

His dad called the cops who then called their dads and he never saw the kids again.

I had some dudebros in their bro trucks that looooved to drive up on the embankment that is on a curve in front of my yard. Hammered a few rebars into the ground where the tire tracks were eroding my yard and the problem mysteriously vanished.

Aidan: Our postbox is still in a 5-gal bucket full of cement, above ground. Surprisingly the mail carrier hasn't complained, and the one time we got mailbox-baseballed (wtf is with you country people?!), it took some damage but mostly just fell over. It amuses me. I hope the carrier never makes us bury the bucket. :)


Round off the bottom of the bucket and make the mailbox into a giant weeble wobble.

Strangely, this story seems to happen to everybody's friend's uncle's cousin, in every town in the U.S. of A.


In Denver, there was a radio station where the morning show would prank someone over the phone on their birthday. One guy had filled his mailbox with concrete b/c it had been baseballed so many times (installed a smaller normal box on the far side).

They called this guy, posing as the father of a teenage boy who had broken his arm last night trying to destroy the mailbox. The "father" said he was going to sue the hell out of the homeowner. The homeowner freaking flipped. "Tell your boy to come over here so I can break his other farking arm and shove his bat up his ass!!" He went on for a good minute before they played him the happy birthday song.

Used to love those calls.

My dad lived on a corner lot, and had a problem with a drunk asshole with a truck who liked to shave a few feet off his journey to the liquor store by driving acoss my dad's lawn. It wasn't even a square lot, it was rounded, but the guy just rounded it a little more. Well dad got tired of filling ruts, so he buried some 6 foot rebar poles along the edge. A couple of weeks later, he goes out one morning to find a rear truck bumper and part of a muffler in his yard.

While this is mostly urban legend, I'm sure there probably are a few instances where it really did happen.

My true story is of an @sshole in a Jeep with big offroad tires that was taking great amusement in driving down our street and knocking all the piled snow at the edge of the road back in front of the driveways where it was cleared from.  I cleared the driveway again, and then hosed down the snow pile turning it into a big "slushie", which then froze that night.  The next day we got a new snowfall with nice light fluffy snow covering it all.
That night I hear the Jeep coming down the street, and managed to make it to the window in time to see him hit what he thought would be a nice big pile of loose snow.  He hit hard and the Jeep went up onto two wheels briefly and came down hard again, but he managed to keep going.  I never saw him again, so I think he learned a lesson (at least not to pull that sh*t on MY street).

The communal mailbox zone in my rural home.  Though the kids (football players) didn't  usually use the truck they were riding in, just bats/clubs and their hands.  Our back neighbor installed his mailbox in an expensive reinforced housing and stand, so they'd just rip the door off of it.

This also happened around once a year for over a decade, something about jocks and mailboxes.

Still it made an excellent response one time when they were going around begging for money.  "I buy a new mailbox because your team members destroy my old one about once a year.  Call that my donation and fark off."

90+ posts, and only one mention of Joe's Truck Stop?



"In 1935 Joe Faulkner built a house on Fifth Street, directly in front of a mountain road. Things were fine until around 1950 when Alabama designated the road State Highway 35, and truckers started using it. The truckers would burn out their brakes on the steep, two-mile mountain pass, and the first year thirteen trucks went through Joe's yard. He had a row of trees which they took out, one by one. Trucks, several of whose drivers died, spilled such diverse loads as chickens, watermelons, cows, logs, lumber, and steel onto Joe's yard, porch, and roof. He once had three circus trucks in his yard. In 1959, after various officials failed to make good their promises to remedy the situation, Joe built a four-foot-thick concrete wall reinforced with wire, grader blades, steel pipe, and the chassis from two Dodge trucks. The wall is only about two feet high, so loads still spill into his yard, but trucks have never been able to do anything worse to the wall than knock chunks out of it. In 1989 I went to Fort Payne to see the wall, which local kids have named Joe's Truck Stop."

I've heard that story told in different ways. Sometimes it's a concrete filled mailbox, sometimes it's a metal pipe planted in cement. All the stories are just to scare kids. Boogie-man stories to keep bored kids from hitting mailboxes with a baseball bat.

/also for the lawsuit guy, I've seen many a decorative brick mailbox, and I have reason to believe they all stem from baseball bat to mailbox interaction.

Cardboard Sonotube works and is dirt cheap, also the heavy cardboard tubes that they store sailboat sails in, if you are around any marinas. Both work really well for making bollards, and they help keep the concrete wet as it cures, which makes it much stronger and less prone to cracking/crumbling. Remember to bury them deep so they don't just pull out, and whack the piss out of them as you are pouring them if you don't have a proper concrete stinger, just to make sure you get the trapped air pockets out.

Never heard of sonotube, a quick google and it looks like I can get it locally. How deep is deep. iirc 22 foot telegraph poles only go down 3 feet, but of course the bottom of the pole is wider. I don't think they need to stick up more than 2 feet. Bringing the car to a complete stop isn't necessary, I would be happy to take out a sump or radiator.

I would go down 3 feet just to be sure. Three feet above ground too, so jacked up 4X4's still get stopped. Use some rebar or concrete that has reinforcing fibers too (or both if you want to really make them durable). A high pressure rated mix is a good idea as well since it is stronger, but can be more expensive. Also, don't forget to round or slant the tops slightly to reduce water penetration to improve the lifespan of the concrete.


A hypothetical acquaintance of mine used sawn-off telephone poles; as you say, 3' down, and 3' up.  Worked pretty good for 45 years, so far.

Hypothetically.

Given that part of the intended use is against VBIEDs?  Quite well.  At that point you don't give a hoot about how intact the barrier is AFTER the impact, as long as it stops(and keeps stopped) the rammer.

So your gasoline tanker might catch fire, but then it's burning in an open area NOT next to the critical buildings you're protecting with the barriers.


Good to know.

CSB time: There is a community college on an old air base where I got my first Associate's degree. The air force used one of the disused dorms and the adjacent airport to house a wing of planes while their base's runway was repaved completely and had new building built (full base renovation to replace the 30 year old stuff that was falling apart). They put up barriers to protect the dorm they were using as barracks from vehicles being driven into them, but only on one side. You could literally come from the other direction and there was nothing to stop a vehicle. And it wasn't all that odd to see trucks on that side of campus because of the CDL classes and deliveries to the welding school's building.

I guess they figured that terrorists were too dumb or spontaneous to do a basic look before attacking.

If so one of these more than a foot deep will stop most road vehicles if the slope is on the outside. If you have a really big yard you could make big one (10' or so) with the slope on your side of the Ha-Ha, for shiats and giggles when someone tries to drive over your lawn.

Not CSB


I would say not having your mail delivered would be a bonus? The USPS is obsolete anyway.

Six months after buying my house the mail redirect from the previous owners expired, and I started receiving tons of unwanted mail. I got a little perturbed and told the mail carrier to stop putting mail in my box that didn't have my name on it (talking +8 items a day, enough to double my trash output!). The mail person declined. I called the supervisor, she said tough.

So, I simply took my mail box off my house in a "Fark you" move to the postal service. Everyday the carrier would stick a memo on my door saying I needed to put my box back up. I laughed at that. I didn't have to do sh*t.

The memo's became threatening, then pleading. Then after a couple months, finally, a surrender note with a phone number.

They graciously sorted my mail for the next ~2 years. At which point I am guessing someone got promoted, quit or retired because I started getting the previous owners mail again. However, it was only a letter or 2 a day, so I dealt with it at that point.

I remember seeing a video a few years ago demonstrating a new kind of barrier designed to stop virtually anything. They drove a semi at it (remotely guided) at very high speed. The semi was stopped dead and its engine was torn out and thrown a good distance. Made quite an impression. Don't think even an MRAP would have penetrated it.

scottydoesntknow: My 10th grade history teacher loved to tell the story of how punk kids would drive their pick-up down his street when he was young and slam their door into his family's mailbox and knock it over.

After about the 4th time, his dad decided to install a new mailbox. This mailbox was dug 5 feet into the ground, had a metal pole (with wood around it to hide the pole), and concrete poured in. One day they're all sitting around inside and they hear a really loud crunching noise outside. They go out and there's a door to a Chevy wrapped around the mailbox and two teenagers dazed and wondering what the hell happened.

His dad called the cops who then called their dads and he never saw the kids again.

Strangely, this story seems to happen to everybody's friend's uncle's cousin, in every town in the U.S. of A.

Use these next time.

Nah.  Hire me instead.  I've figure out the kind of fence that'll stop anything short of a charging MRAP and even they won't go far afterwards


Go on...

zamboni: The Toyota is not the first car to have landed in their front yard, so about 10 years ago Mr. Smith installed five 6-by-6 steel beams at the edge of the road.


Lawsuit by the driver in 3... 2...

"If the steel beams hadn't been installed, she wouldn't have been injured." All it will take is one greasy lawyer.

These days, that's attempted murder. He knew that his actions would result in injury, possibly death. I ask you ladies and gentlemen of the jury what were the defendant's intentions if not to cause great bodily harm if not (dramatic pause) death.

One of my gradeschool teachers fixed the take the corner through his front yard by installing some lovely landscaping.

2 to 3 foot in diameter white granite river rocks, spaced about 2 feet apart. They were so pretty. And so effective.
