FREEHOLD - Drivers who found themselves involved in fender-benders after Tuesday's snowstorm headed to body shops to try and erase those memories.

Pinto's Auto Body in Freehold says storms mean big business. Owners say tow trucks were bringing in car after car all day.

Commuters say road conditions in Freehold are poor, with snow and ice still coating some roads. Many in the area turned to body shops for repairs.

Mechanics say a day's work turns into a week, and then multiple weeks, and sometimes months of work.

"We've been crazy today," says manager Brittney Zappia. "We got a little bit of a late start because we all had to commute in."

The New Jersey State Patrol says it responded to 235 motor vehicle accidents and over 350 drivers who needed help on Tuesday.

"People shouldn't be driving. It's the honest truth. But, you have to go to work," says Ed Bernstein of Pinto's Auto Body.

State troopers are advising drivers to be aware of icy conditions as temperatures are expected to dip into the single digits overnight.
