Moline Public Works said it has been taking care of the roads throughout Saturday -- particularly focusing on treating slick spots to keep drivers safe. 

Many of those drivers were heading out to do some last minute Christmas and holiday shopping in Moline. 

Shoppers told KWQC stores hadn't been as packed or chaotic as they were expecting they would be on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. 

The shopping could slow down tomorrow, too, as many shoppers told us they are planning on avoiding the winter weather conditions both Saturday night and Sunday. 

Moline Public Works said it will have crews clearing the roads overnight. Doug House with public works said the department planned on calling in the whole 12-person third shift public works crew. Then after having 12 trucks out on the roads overnight covering all parts of the city, House said the city is expecting to put 25 trucks out on the road -- all the trucks the department has. 

House said during this time, public works asks residents to avoid parking on the street if at all possible. If a car is found parked in two inches of snow, it can be towed, House said. 

Meantime -- public works departments and other officials in the Quad Cities are asking drivers to stay off the roads if they do not have to drive.
