6 Tips for Safe Driving in SummerJuly 23, 2020
Delray Beach, Florida summers are hot and humid with intense sunlight throughout the day. Presidential Auto Leasing & Sales is open and happy to help with any service you might need as the temperatures increase, and these tips for safe driving in summer will keep your family more comfortable when traveling in severe heat.
Stay in Shade
Park your car indoors or in the shade whenever possible. Sunshades are great investments for anyone in Delray Beach so you aren’t always greeted by a sauna in your car.
Always exercise smart and safe habits when driving in extreme heat. Open windows when you get in to let heat out, be careful of hot surfaces in the car such as seatbelt buckles and the steering wheel, and optimize the angle of your air conditioner vents so everyone can enjoy cool air.
Keeping your fluids such as coolant, brake fluids, and engine oil fresh and topped off so the inner workings of your vehicle can stay cool will help prevent overheating.
Check the Battery
Heat will do a number on your battery, so have it checked on a service visit to Presidential, especially if it is over 3 years old.
Underinflated tires are more likely to overheat. So, it’s essential that you keep your vehicle’s tires inflated to the manufacturer-recommended level.
