    If they are just scratches and not gouges they should discolor and blend in with the rest of the concrete pretty quickly.

    I have some of those on our front steps from shoveling this winter and I was wondering the same thing. I really hope they go away!

    They make an epoxy you can buy in most concrete store/plants that are made for this purpose. Caught drive with harley rake and left deep scratches. Ins. co. told me how to fix them since home owner were going to sue for a whole new drive. works great and if you need some dye to match they have that also.
    Saved me a claim and cost all of $12 with a little dye, sent the pic. to Ins. Co. for legal purpose but you can't see anything.
