The walk and drive to and from work continues to be slow and treacherous for Halifax commuters with ice still covering chunks of the city's streets on Tuesday.
The Capital District Health Authority said of the 121 people treated at the Halifax Infirmary's emergency department by 3 p.m. on Monday, 19 of those were people slipping and falling on icy spots. The health authority said it stopped keeping track of the number of people injured after falling after that.
On Tuesday, 25 people went to the emergency room in Halifax for injuries associated with slips and falls.
At Dartmouth General Hospital, 27 people went to the hospital after slipping and falling on icy spots on Monday. Another 14 injured people went to the hospital on Tuesday.
Cleanup crews were back out on Tuesday, trying to clear away what's left after snow, rain and a dip in temperature on the weekend coated the roads and sidewalks with ice.
The city began clearing sidewalks on the peninsula this winter, meaning people don't have to shovel. The city uses small vehicles that clear the snow, but they left compacted ice covering many walkways.
Crews said they would have the streets cleared by Tuesday, but Frederick Martell, who was waiting at the Barrington Street and Spring Garden Road bus stop, said the walk is still tricky.
"Just layers and layers of ice. Very hard to stand," he said. "Very hard to wait for the bus. I had to wait outside. Maybe something can be done about that. When they're salting sidewalks maybe they could chuck some in where you have to stand and wait for the bus."
Irene Dill, travelling from Desmond Road, said she watched some seniors struggle with walking.
"The bus stop itself had a pile of snow in front of it and that snow was so hard and icy. An elderly lady got off. I felt very bad she had to step over all that. I'm afraid of falling myself," she said.
"It is winter, you have to expect that."
Another storm is expected to hit the province overnight Tuesday into Wednesday.
