I came to work at Addison Auto in September of 2013. One of my first real surprises was learning that auto crashes are actually worse in Summer than Winter. Before I worked at a collision repair shop I would have assumed that snow made the roads icy and cars were more prone to crash on ice. What I came to learn is that people are much more cautious on the ice and tend to drive slower. Wrecks that tend to happen at lower speeds result in small damages. Conversely, in the Summertime people drive full speed everywhere and those same accidents that might have been smaller or avoided altogether become full blow collisions.
