LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Some body shops in central Arkansas have lines of cars outside their garages.

They're banged up and need repairs, stemming from the slipping and sliding drivers experienced along streets Friday night.

Because of the volume of cars, it means patience among the victims.

At West Auto Body shop, Owner Larry West said his phone has been ringing off the hook.  Some of his loyal customers dropped their cars off before he opened his shop Monday morning.

The damages range from all types of dents on bumpers and doors and cracked windshields

West said he took off this past weekend because he knew what to expect today.

"I'd love the business but I'd rather folks to be safe than tearing their cars up than making money," said Larry West.

West said he's looking at the weather forecast and is urging everyone to stay home.  If you are hit, he said be sure to exchange insurance information to make sure it's correct before anyone drives off.
