Slick conditions are keeping responders busy. Monday afternoon, Omaha Police announced they are temporarily suspending all response to accidents only involving property damage.

Drivers should only call if cars can't be moved off the street, or if there are injuries requiring transport to the hospital.

"If involved in a property damage accident, move your vehicles to an area where you can safely exchange information. By law, you must exchange name, address, phone number, driver's license number and vehicle information. It is not required to exchange insurance information but we strongly recommend it," reads the police statement.

Police ask witnesses of property damage accidents to leave contact information with the drivers.
