A year of jail for driving in Boston???? That's insane.—

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.
Boston Mayor wants to fine people $500 if they're on the road now because of the blizzard. WTF is up with that? Government is whack!—

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!!—

Boston’s taking the snow seriously, and citizens seem to be taking the fine seriously. Most of them, anyway.
If you still don’t think #Snowpocalypse is that big of a deal in Beantown, check this out: even Starbucks is closed.
