Because of Hurricane Joaquin’s upcoming bad weather, and in preparation for the approaching winter season, it’s possible the Governor may call a State of Emergency at any time over the next few months. Please keep in mind the three-level driving restriction system put into place by the state of Delaware. These can be found in the Delaware Code, Subsection 3116(b)(12).
Level 1 Driving Warning. Drivers are discouraged from operating a motor vehicle on the state’s roadways, unless there is a significant safety, health, or business reason to do so.
Level 2 Driving Warning. Travel is restricted to emergency workers, public utilities, healthcare providers including hospital staff, public/private operations of snow removal equipment, private sector food and fuel deliveries and those industries, companies or organizations that have been provided a waiver, including businesses with pressing continuity/operational issues.
Level 3 Driving Warning. Complete ban on driving except for first responders, utility personnel, and public or private snow removal. Businesses and organizations should adjust work schedules so that employees do not need to be on the roads during this ban.
