    This is one of the worst parking lots in town.Crowded, busy etc. I think the last time this happened it was an elderly driver.

    Barrier or no barrier, there is a HUGE wall there. She was how old? That was failure to stop.

    The exact thing happened at the post office on graves about 10 weeks ago. Without barriers, this is "an accident waiting to happen". IMHO

    I agree this isnt the first time this has happened. Some cement barriers of some sort need to be placed there. My PO box is also there near where the car crashed. Kinda scary!

    Come on! This is a VERY common occurance at this PO. Sure am glad I was not there as my box is right where the wall was hit. They need to put a restraining wall or something there to keep people from doing this!
