Mail Box for Garage Door Mail Slot

My overhead garage door has a mail slot for mail delivery. The mail drops onto the garage floor (or a box I put under the slot), but I either have to drive over my mail (or runover it sometimes) or get out of the car, move the box, and then drive into the garage (not preferable in the rain). Is there any home improvement product out there or any home-made device that I can install on the inside of the garage door under the mail slot that would allow me to catch the mail and also drive the car into the garage without hitting it (when the overhead garage door is in the open position). Thank you.

I would just move my mail slot off the door, or put up an outside mail box.

If there is nothing that a small box would interfere with, such as the door panels when the door opens or the throw rods, etc. you could cut a hole in the box for the mail to go into and the hinged lid would go to the garage side so it could open. this could be a cardboard, wood, plastic or metal box, with a latch or magnetic latch. Just fasten the box so the openings match.
good luck,
