Icy weather brings repair shops business

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- With temperatures below freezing there are still plenty of slick spots on the roads.

ABC 57 checked with Dales Service Center in South Bend. Fixing cars keeps them busy this time of year but if you take care of your car before it gets really messy out it can help get you through the winter.

"We will also find that they are not looking at their suspension components beforehand.  We will have some accidents out there in which the tire rod or ball joint will separate and that will cause the accident. They lose the ability to steer," said Dale Miller, owner of Dale's Service Center.

Dale says the biggest problems are caused by drivers who run on bald tires.
