If you spend enough time driving, sooner or later you're going to end up in some sticky weather situations, like a winter storm, or high winds, or even tornados.
It is up to the driver to stay abreast and informed of conditions, and to make the decision to drive, or not. When it comes to safety, the decision on whether or not it is safe to drive is always the drivers.
If conditions are treacherous, nobody can force you to drive if you don't feel that it's safe. Dispatchers & management realize that your life and the cargo is not worth the risk of driving in dangerous conditions.
That said, it is up to the driver to do their best to stay informed of current, and future conditions, to avoid the best that they can those kinds of conflicts.
