Check Tire Pressure: Higher temperatures can cause tire pressure to increase, leading to potential blowouts. Check your tire pressure and ensure they are correctly inflated.  

Stay Hydrated: Driving in hot weather can be dehydrating. Staying hydrated is crucial by drinking plenty of water throughout your journey. 

Use Sun Protection: The intense summer sun can cause glare, hindering visibility. Use sun visors and sunglasses to reduce glare and improve your vision.  

Maintain a Safe Distance: Increase your following distance behind other vehicles to allow for sudden stops or unexpected maneuvers. This extra space provides a buffer zone and reduces the risk of rear-end collisions. 

Watch for Pedestrians and Bicyclists: Summer weather attracts more pedestrians and bicyclists. Keep an eye out for them, especially near popular recreational areas, parks, and residential neighborhoods.  

Avoid Distracted Driving: Distracted driving is dangerous at any time of the year. Avoid eating while driving and keep your focus solely on the road. Pull over to a safe location to attend to any distractions if necessary. 

Plan Ahead: Plan your routes, especially for longer trips. Furthermore, check for traffic updates and potential road closures.
