Car care has grown more prominent in the minds of drivers in Atlanta with the onset of icy weather in the city, it has been claimed.
Body shops in the Georgian capital revealed that there has been a surge in the number of customers who want their automobiles washed, reports Wabe.
Heather Coleman, who works at a local car wash, told the news provider: "The cars were very dirty. The wheels [were] extremely dirty. [There was] salt, sand, all on the underside very, very, nasty."
More and more people are reportedly booking their cars in for bodywork repairs as the ice has led to a higher number of minor accidents.
Indeed, a worker at the Victory Paint and Body Works in Marietta said the store was booked up and that there have been numerous cases of accidents in which drivers have skidded on the icy roads.
This comes after the Toronto Sun cited automotive expert Pat Clancy, who advised motorists to have a good battery and washer fluid that is good for between -40C and -49C for when the weather turns cold.
