LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The U.S. Postal Service is asking for help to keep workers safe.

Hazards such as uneven surfaces, wet pavement, snow and ice can pose a serious threat to Postal Service employees and other delivery drivers.

Residents with door delivery are asked to make sure sidewalks, steps and porches are clear. For those with curbside delivery, you're asked to remove any snow piles left by plows.

Residents and businesses with blue collection boxes are asked to keep them clear of snow and ice.
