While I am sure VA DOT has a lot of regrets and lessons learned from this event, I don't think it is fair to push the blame entirely on them. After all the individual drivers decided to ignore the forecasts and drive in a major storm. I don't think it is ever realistic to expect that an area can get that much snow and the roads are all instantly cleared, especially during a pandemic when crews are likely short handed due to sick employees.

Those huge electronic road signs (really) said "Mask Up." They did not tell drivers of the meltdown ahead. This one is on the DoT.

As to WEA, it is a great concept but it rarely works as intended.
