Earlier this month, in advance of a major snow storm, Governor Cuomo announced that he was closing the Long Island Expressway.
On Tuesday, the LIE remained open as snow fell. This week's storm started earlier in the day and heavy snow fell at a time when commuters were going home, rather than the overnight hours when the LIE closing took place.
At the same time, there were heavy delays for many commuters and it took hours for them to get home.
We want to know what ideas you have to make snowy commutes safer. Should major highways always be shut down until they're passable? Should they always be kept open? What can be done to get more people to take public transportation when snow is in the forecast? Should employers be more flexible about releasing workers during storms?
