Beating the heat in your car and how to make successful a car accident claim
If you are driving long distances in the summer, you don’t only need to think about the other cars on the road, potential hazards and dangers, but also about the weather and how you are going to keep yourself cool and safe when it is very hot.
This may not seem easy, but it is important that you keep the temperature down in the car, not only for yourself but also for any passengers that may be in the car with you. Be aware that if you get stuck in traffic you may find yourself in direct sunlight, and will need a way to keep everyone cool.
- Have air conditioning. Although it can be expensive to get a car that has air conditioning, it may work out to be more than worthwhile in the long run, as when it is particularly hot in the summer, nothing cools down a car more efficiently. It also means you don’t need to worry about noise from outside.
- Open a window. If you can’t afford air conditioning, or don’t like the idea of it, you can simply open a window to create a breeze that should help you to feel more comfortable in any heat. Make sure that you only open windows a crack so that it isn’t too noisy, and so that flies and wasps can’t get into the car and distract you from your driving.
- Bring cold drinks. If you freeze a water bottle at home before you leave the house, you can then hold onto this and sip from it as it starts to melt, keeping your body temperature low and making yourself feel more comfortable in even the most extreme heat. If you don’t want to do this with a water bottle in case it bursts, you can also buy ice packs which can be reused.
