Icy streets in Calgary are wreaking havoc on commuters trying to get to where they're going during the holidays.
The roads in the city have been treacherous since Friday, with more than 400 accidents reported.
Sunday alone there were more than 250 accidents, while today there have been at least 70 more.
Temperatures are supposed to stay below minus 20, until Thursday and all that snow and ice is wreaking havoc on the roads.
Emergency crews and police continue to run from accident to accident, police said Monday morning.
EMS spokesperson Stuart Brideaux is asking that drivers slow down as they rush to buy last minute gifts.
"Reduce your speeds, increase your traveling distances for sure and allow plenty of plenty of time. Even minor collisions along the Deerfoot are causing significant tie ups. We certainly do not want to see any more collisions right before the holidays."
City officials say they are doing everything they can to keep up with the slippery surfaces. Sanders and plows have been on call 24 hours a day and continue to work away.
The crews are focusing on main roads through the city and then are working outwards towards residential areas.
