The mailbox I was talking about was off the main road, on a private
road was properly marked "No Trespassing!", and "No trucks over 6000 lbs
GVW". There was no way to drive by it at any speed. You had to pull off
the main road, back around, then pull up to it on the right side of the
private road and 25 feet off the main road. So you had to trespass on a
private road to destroy government property. In an area with numerous
complaints filed with the county sheriff over vandalism. You wouldn't
have a leg to stand on and not much of an arm to lean on, either. :)
