There is a "half mile rule". They set the routes decades ago. If you live off the route, you can "pull" the route 1/2 mile closer. If there are two houses down the same road, they can each pull 1/2 mile and make the carrier drive up to one mile off the original route. Sometimes it's enough to get the mailbox at the end of your driveway. Sometimes the mailbox ends up being in the middle of nowhere.
