I put a letter into a red Australia Post box on the street today and was very surprised to see that the times after which the box gets emptied have changed. It used to be 6 pm on weekdays and Sunday but now it’s 3 pm on weekdays and 12 pm on Sundays. I guess they don’t want their drivers being out so late on the roads when the roads are very busy around 6 pm with everybody coming back from work during the week and when the sun has gone down so that it’s dark during the months that don’t fall under daylight savings.
