Remember that as of 12/26/2022 at 1 pm, there is still a driving ban in the Town of Amherst and City of Buffalo. Stay safe and stay warm at home.”

Erie CountyIs the Buffalo travel ban still in effect today?

“The driving ban will not be lifted any time soon,” Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said in a morning news conference. In addition to the city of Buffalo, New York, a driving ban also remains in place for Amherst, Lackawanna, Cheektowaga, Clarence and Hamburg, as of 3 p.m. on December 26, 2022.

He did note that authorities are aware of concerns that people are short of food.

According to Poloncarz, snow “is still dropping in the city” on December 26. He said 8 to 12 inches of snow was expected in some areas of the city through 1 p.m. on December 27, 2022.

“This is not helpful as we are trying to recover and clear off streets and get into areas that still have not had a plow,” said Poloncarz, adding that a state of emergency remained in effect for all of Erie County, and there is still a driving ban in the City of Buffalo and some other communities.
