Gov. Patrick Lifts Driving Ban Enacted During Storm


Boston, Mass. (WGGB) – Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has lifted the statewide driving ban, put into effect before the snow storm… though he is still urging people to stay home unless they need to be out.

He says it’s going to take some time to clear the vast amount of snow.

“The state police and national guard have been out in force and working in tandem,” said Patrick Saturday afternoon. “They have been helping with some 50 people stuck on ramps last night and they even delivered a baby in Worcester.”

That baby and mom are said to be doing well.

The driving ban was the first state-wide ban enacted since the 1978 blizzard.
