Extreme heat can be dangerous for people, pets and our cars.
It’s important to have water with you in the hot weather, but AAA says water bottles can be a fire hazard when left in a hot car.
They can act like magnifying glasses when the sun hits it just right, according to AAA.
Here is a list of other items AAA recommends you remove from a hot car:
- Bottles of water or other drinks
- Food and plants
- Anything explosive
AAA also says you should try to park under shade and crack you windows to relieve and release the built-up heat inside your car.
