“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”

Thank you Einstien, you are living in my heart. That was true, so that here are the top tips to avoid hot summer driving problems
Drive safely

1- Your Health and safety:

- Keep a car fire extinguisher near to you, just in case.
- keep a large bottle of water near to you and may be some of your favorite fruits, snacks, juice, or cold drinks. Sunburn affects your body's ability to cool itself and causes a loss of body fluids.
- Do not leave Children or pets in a Car alone. Even if the car was air conditioned or the windows are open. Don’t leave them fallen asleep in the car.
- Avoid sudden change in temperature; this will be stressful to your body. Stay one min in your car with opened windows to gradually temperature change.
- Direct sun exposure so harmful.
- In case of driving or riding in a convertible, wrap your hair well, wear a sunglasses, or wear a hat.
- Keep a fully-charged mobile phone with you in case of emergency
- If you are 65 years of age or older, keep in contact with a friend along the way
- keep the first aid bag
Please Drive Safe

2- Your car health and safety 

- Check tire pressures, avoid tire over pressure due to hot roads.
- Check your radiator coolant levels, and be sure there is no leakage under your car or around the radiator, and hoses.
- Check your engine oil levels, and be sure there is no leakage under your car or around the engine
- Check the cooling fan for proper operation
- Don’t fill your fuel tank up to the brim, the heat expansion could cause a fuel leak.
- Don't splash hot engine or brakes with water. This is  extreme thermal stress over any hot body.
- Park in the shade.

Drive safe, and remember there is always someone waiting for you, and another one is writing this article for you :) waiting your comment too
