Be sure take with you cool water in sufficient quantity and necessary medicines. Try to wear free, permeable clothing, avoid the usage of fatty and salty foods. Park in the shadow if it is possible and ventilate the passenger compartment before starting movement. Do not leave children and animals in a closed car, even for a short period of time.
Check the technical condition of car before the trip. In hot weather, the special attention should be paid to the engine cooling system, the oil level, the condition of brake pads and the tire pressure.
