Why didn't the appropriate government agency (DOT?)
salt the highways and bridges they knew would freeze by early Friday morning instead of doing it after 200 accidents had occurred? Everyone knew from weather reports that roadways and bridges would ice over due to freezing rain and the authorities knew that people would have to drive to work Friday morning. Couldn't the folks that salt our roads be more proactive than reactive? What's the point of putting salt on the roads when the temperature is rising and wrecks have already occurred. This is tragic! Next time, get it right!

I will have to say I do not understand DOT's reasoning behind not salting at least the bridge ways before -on- after that only would of cut the wreaks by
3/4 DOT screwed this one up but bad. Even the commuter bus had a hard time.

If they had Yankees runnin the DOT, and the plows, and salt trucks, the roads woulda been fine.
