This law was put into place because the old refrigerators had latches that locked the door and kept it from being opened from the inside. Today's fridges all use magnetic closures that DO NOT lock the door, this is a safety feature that makes leaving a fridge with the door on as safe as one without the door.
As for placing one more law on the books because someone might be stupid enough to crawl inside one of these boxes, especially since it hasn't happened except to an extremely greedy woman, is just advocating for more nanny state laws.
I’m just thinking of goofy kids....it can’t be that hard to adjust these boxes so if a kid gets in, they can get out.

The regulation possibilities are endless, as they usually are. Bureaucrats across the country will hold hearings, pass new laws, and establish whole new departments with legions of “enforcement personnel” to monitor the drop boxes. Of course the existing boxes will be redesigned, courtesy of tax payer funded grants.
