CT Travel Ban on Highway Travel Begins at 4 p.m.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy made the announcement today.


Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that there will be a ban on motor vehicle travel on limited access highways in the State of Connecticut beginning at 4 p.m.

These prohibitions do not extend to emergency response and recovery vehicles, including public safety vehicles, utility vehicles, and vehicles carrying essential personnel or supplies.

“As the weather gets worse over the next few hours, we need to keep the roads clear, so that emergency-related personnel and utility crews can reach those that may need our help,” Governor Malloy said.  “By traveling in these conditions, you are not only putting yourself in danger, but you are potentially risking the lives of first responders, utility workers and other residents. Please be safe.”

The travel ban will remain in effect until further notice.

And little old ladies who just have to get their hair done today. Just like my neighbor. I couldn't believe it when she took her car out of her garage. "My hair!"

It feels like North Korea, all these automated emergency calls. Is there any way to opt out of the notification system?
