How to avoid another snowy traffic mess
The federal Office of Personnel Management (OPM) mitigated Wednesday's traffic nightmare by releasing employees two hours early. This allowed many people to get home before the snow even started. Closing even earlier would have been better. To better manage the safety risk without increasing the political risk of giving federal employees too much time off, OPM should allow (1) unscheduled comp time when the government closes early and (2) immediate unscheduled leave and telecommuting when a midday closing is announced, to get people off the roads sooner.
