This is a recurring issue.  About two weeks ago the neighbors just to my West had their mailbox run over (no snow / vehicle marks).  Last season (or perhaps the winter before that) I had my mailbox hit in the exact same fashion (same direction, same up on the lawn and back to the street tire marks).  Purchase records show a 12-14-99 plastic maibox purchase.  I can't recall if this is the third time my mailbox has been taken out or just the second.

Mailbox and vehicle parts collected.  The front row of parts are painted and there is also a piece of orange turn signal lens.
