Growing up I had a neighbor who had his mailbox take out regularly by 
the plow.  Town said tough luck.  He was a well driller so he set up his 
rig and bored into the bedrock.  He then insert an old drilling shaft 
into hole and set is mail box on top.  It was hit by the plow only once 
after that.
