i passed this post box last monday – this is it on the way home with a zooming post van behind it

i deliberately went this way back home to see if it was still surrounded by the barriers i had seen that morning

can you believe any postbox would be so busy it would need riot control techniques to restrict traffic to its mouth ?  perhaps sunday collections are so rare these days that extreme calming measures are required ?
