Experts also support employees working from home rather than driving in storm.

“Just a relatively small number adhering to this advice can make a difference in clearing and treating the roads,” said Steve Carrellas, state policy director for the National Motorists Association. “This campaign is likely aimed at those who have the flexibility to not travel or travel under better conditions.”

He suggested the DOT work with the business community to get their cooperation to minimize traffic during a storm.
