Do the rest of the neighbors have a mailbox on the street? If so, it would distrupt the delivery system if the carrier would have to walk to your door to deliver. Do you have a handicap that would prevent you from going to the sidewalk?

It would appear to be a cost saving situation for the Post office.

Just be thankful you do not have to go to the corner and get your mail from a set of neighborhood boxes.

You may also call the post Office to see what the policy is, especially if you feel you are being singled out as the only one having to install a box at the sidewalk.
