    They won't have a chance to. A whole lot of snow is about fall up near Buffalo, like 5 feet or so. If they are traveling toward the thru way, DOT will be waiting right at the stateline if they try it. That's a massive ticket if they get caught. I heard some drivers in PA got caught trying to drive during a travel ban, i think like 4 years ago. That was a 600 dollar ticket. New York ain't holding no punches. They'll probably write one for 1000, and if Amazon gets in the ditch, they'll cite em again lol

    With what is out here on our roads for truck drivers it probably is a good idea.

    Our governor still sucks though..

    Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

    I loaded in Buffalo last night. Didn’t get to extend my stay so I could see that type of accumulation.

    I stopped at a McDonald’s outside of town. The lady jokingly said the men shouldn’t be out working as they should be at home getting blankets ready to keep the women warm. Little does she know I pick women who carry permanent insulation heheheh.

    I remember back in the good old days, when we didn't drive like complete ####ing morons in the snow and were able to make it to our destinations without daddy government telling us what to do.

    This...

    I was born and raised in what's left of upstate New York. It was never this bad before the industry got flooded with mega fleeters and clueless foreigners. If the weather was bad you had two choices, park it, or push through it. We didn't need some government official who never sat day one in a big truck to hold our hand, and decide what's best for us.
