This is how police states work. Not that many people would want to be out traveling in sub zero temperatures, but when you are not free to do so, you are not free.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

This IS what Martial Law is. Despicable.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 49096500


Thats what I'm sayin, 10 years ago, they wouldn't threaten people with fines or arrest, they just tell you it's a major risk. It was up to me to decide if what I had to do was worth the risk. If it was going to get a beer I wanted to chance it that's up to me. Don't need dhs warning maps telling me what's what.

If snow plows are getting stuck in the street I doubt a police cruiser will have much of a chance of doing any enforcement.

Re: DEKALB COUNTY IL, ISSUES LEVEL ONE TRAVEL WARNING MARTIAL LAW
It isn't uncommon for road travel to be restricted during winter storms. Emergency personnel have enough to do with clearing roads and handling cold weather related injuries without people getting on the freeway, getting in a wreck on an icy road or breaking down and not having supplies to keep warm while waiting for rescue.

I didn't see any reference to martial law.

Restricting travel by suggestion is one thing, but threatening you is another thing all together. And I I freeze to death it's my choice no ones else's, I don't need their protection.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45198861


I kind of have to agree with you, OP.

Who the fuck are "they" to say that you have to stay inside or be fined???

Fuck that.

If you want to snowshoe in a subzero blizzard, that should be your prerogative. If Search and Rescue has to come remove your frozen ass, that's their job and what they're paid to do.

We should have the right to make our own choices and live with the consequences without an additional financial spanking from big daddy government.

Fuckers.

OP, you are going overboard here. I grew up and spent the first 38 years of my life in Indiana (last 7 in NC & VA) and this was common. A serious state of emergency during major blizzard conditions happened every few years since childhood. Not Martial Law...trust me, there is a huge difference.

Re: DEKALB COUNTY IL, ISSUES LEVEL ONE TRAVEL WARNING MARTIAL LAW
I drove in DeKalb Co today. I work in Genoa and am wondering about travel in the morning. Is there a link I can check to see when this "level 1" crap is lifted?

Saw a SUV try to pass a snow plow, lose control in a snow drift, cross in front of the plow and end up in a ditch. Later, I saw a plow itself in a ditch.

Roads looked clear, problem was isolated patches of black ice and nasty wind with snow drifts. There were small, fast moving rivulets of snow blowing across the blacktop every couple of feet. Wind caught my car on some ice and blew it sideways. Good times.

Christian County is under a level 3 emergency as well. All roads closed within the county unless you are emergency personnel.
 Quoting: ByFaithAlone


Level 3 what does that lead to arrest. We were just level one, not sure if its gone up
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45198861


They never said anything about fines or arrests if you violate it. But there trying to get the roads in condition enough that rescue vehicles can move through. Im south of there and in same situation. Everything outside of town is impassable. I have a 4 wheel drive truck, a jeep, a tractor and 4 wheelers and nothing will make it through it. The drifts are topping a good 8 feet in places. People tried to risk it and go into town and are being taken in by strangers because its almost blizzard conditions. And even if they could get through there are vehicles stopped in the middle of the roadways. The plows are just stopped they cant get through.

I don't think they have a right to tell you what you can or cannot do but to go out right now where I am would be foolish bordering on deadly.
