Even though I understand why Deval Patrick put this ban in place, mainly so plow workers could do their jobs and not have to worry about slowing down behind drivers who wouldn't have been able to go more than 5mph out there last night anyways! But I do not agree with the ban itself. I think taking away someone's freedom to drive if they want to is ridiculous and does not follow any law that I am aware of. People do not like their freedoms taken away from them, or their rights. If someone wants to be an idiot and drive in a blizzard, that's their own dumb choice and they should suffer the consequences. But I think most people would stay in during the storm anyways, it's just the taking away of their rights to go somewhere if they wanted to go is what is crazy. And why are we still under the ban? And until tomorrow afternoon?! That is ridiculous! The snow has slowed down or completely stopped in some areas, and the roads are clear and passable, so Deval Patrick can STOP throwing his authoritative weight around and let us get back to our jobs and livelihood!!
