By law, a vehicle must have functioning bumpers to be considered road legal. Sometimes a minor automotive collision can affect a bumper with little to no overt damage caused to any of the other body panels.

Giving in to the temptation to simply live with the slightly disfigured bumper, could prove to be a significant error in judgment. In many collisions, the internal buffers or dampers within the bumper can be engaged. This will significantly lessen the bumpers ability to cushion the vehicle, should another collision occur.

At the same time, a damaged bumper can also compromise sensors, cameras, wiring, lights and other electronic components. This can affect the overall safe and legal operation of the vehicle.
