Road Construction Season: How to Avoid Auto Body Damage

In Minnesota, we like to joke that there are only two seasons: winter, and road construction. And since it’s not quite winter, that means we’re deep in the middle of road construction season. While long lines of backed-up traffic can make your daily commute a tedious task, that’s not the only annoyance road construction season brings. Damage to your vehicle’s exterior can make a tedious drive even more frustrating. If you must drive through a construction zone, it’s important to modify your driving habits to protect your ride. Here with a few tips on how to avoid auto body damage in construction zones are the auto body experts at Minnetonka Collision.

Even a minor accident can cause small internal issues, that if not taken care of promptly, can snowball into much larger problems.

Get That Annoying Dent Fixed

Even worse, you'll automatically imagine that everyone else is only looking at the dent, too—and depending on where the flaw is, that might actually be the case.

The mirrors are some of the most susceptible, but your bumpers and header panels are also vulnerable.
