Slippery roads means business boom for auto body shops

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The recent snow has helped give local auto body shops a boost in business.

The slippery road conditions on Wednesday caused a number of fender benders and slide offs.

And now some of those cars are in the body shop.

That means good money to those who fix them.

"We are totally packed, I mean we are two or three weeks in advance right now," said Mike Nelund, president of LaSalle Auto Body. "The ice and snow really helps our business a lot. We just hope for a little more snow before the end of the year and that should take us all the way through spring time."

Police said it usually takes a few snow falls before drivers get used to driving in the winter weather.
