HAVE A LAUGH!
AN EMERY LAW PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT We’ve all experienced getting into a car after it’s been sitting in the sun for a few hours. Super unpleasant, right? Some days it can get so bad that you want to turn the car on and run the air-conditioning for a few minutes before driving. While driving in a car that feels like an oven is nobody’s idea of a good time, being left in a hot car is a much more serious issue. According to the safety organization Kids and Cars, an average of 37 children die every year after being left in a hot vehicle unattended. The number of pets that die from the same cause is even higher. These statistics are so tragic because the fatalities are entirely preventable. My advice is simple: Don’t ever leave your child or pet in a car unattended. You may think you’re just running into the store for a couple of minutes, but there’s no point in risking it. Having to hold your child’s hand as you walk the aisles or tie your dog up outside is not much effort when it guarantees the safety of your loved ones. Remember that it doesn’t need to be sweltering outside for your car’s interior to reach unsafe temperatures. Vehicles are excellent at trapping heat, so the temperature inside a parked vehicle will be higher than the ambient temperature outside. That’s doubly true when you’re parked in a sunny area. After all, a sealed car isn’t the place to feel a summer breeze. There are a number of ways to keep your car cool during the summer. You can use a sunshade, park in a shady area, and keep the windows slightly cracked. I also recommend covering any parts of your car that get particularly warm with a hand towel. That way, when you get into your car, you won’t recoil the second you touch the steering wheel. DON’T LEAVE KIDS OR PETS IN A HOT CAR
