Boston isn’t playing around in the snow. With Nemo promising to dump feet of the white stuff on the city, Boston has banned non-emergency traffic from the city’s streets as of 4 p.m. and threatened a year in jail for those caught behind the wheel.

1 year of jail if on the roads in Boston. Damn, almost as serious as being charged for insubordination for having your phone out at FHS #LJ

Did Boston governor just say anyone caught driving after 4pm will be arrested and spend yr in jail? Does 2nd amendment cover right to drive?

For everyone on the northeast. Governor of Boston said, ” it’s jail time, if you’re out past 4 o’clock. STAY IN!!

How can Boston throw people in jail for driving in the snow makes no sense? #stupidlaw what happnd to free will?

Boston’s taking the snow seriously, and citizens seem to be taking the fine seriously. Most of them, anyway.

Why is Boston threatening a year of jail time for driving after 4:00 pm today?I’m still gonna take a sweet ride at 4:20.#SnowYrRoll
