Local repair shops cashing in on snow storm

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

Most of the icy roads are now clear following this weekend's snow storm, but now a lot of drivers are taking their cars to get fixed and the repair shops are cashing in.

When the temperatures drop and the ice and snow move in, repair shops get busy.

"I had a couple towed in today from over the weekend that were fender benders.", says Marc Young ,Maco Repair

This weekend's snow storm blanketed parts of northwest Ohio, causing dangerous conditions for drivers.

"Through a storm like this we'll probably get 50-60 cars.", says Young

It's the same big business AAA in Toledo is seeing. Experts say the ice, snow and frigid temperatures cause much more than just fender benders. When weather moves in, some cars just won't start.

Best thing to do is get your vehicle in for a weather check, check your antifreeze, tire pressure, your car is ready and your battery is charged and stays charged. That's generally good maintenance to keep you safe.", says Scott Chafin, AAA

This certainly won't be the last snow fall we have this season. Experts say let this be a warning of the dangers the snow can bring.

"If you don't have to go out, don't that way the snow plows have room to work the roads and also slow down. Off the cell phones and just take your time.", says Chafin
