City streets are a mess.

A parking ban is going into effect the minute Monday hits so city crews can roll out the plows.

Edmonton police recorded 130 collisions on Saturday between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. Police recorded four collisions with injuries; 18 hit and runs; and 108 property damage collisions.

Environment Canada ended its snowfall warning at 9:15 p.m. on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Strathcona County RCMP issued a warning on Saturday afternoon about poor driving conditions along Highway 216 between Highway 14 and Highway 16. Mounties said in a news release that there are multiple collisions and vehicles are not being towed because of the poor conditions.
