Summer Temperature Car Tips.
With the summer temperatures climbing here in Sacramento, here are some critical car travel tips to remember.
On average, 37 children die each year in the U.S. from deaths after being left in a car. As summer temperatures climb, here are some critical car travel tips to remember:
Always look before you lock.
Open the back door and look in the backseat every time you leave your car.
Put something you need in the backseat.
Like your cell phone, briefcase, computer, lunch, ID badge, left shoe, or anything essential to your daily routine beside your child.
Travel with a furry companion.
Keep a stuffed animal in the car seat. When your baby is in the seat, the stuffed animal rides shotgun. The furry passenger serves as a reminder that baby’s in the back.
Always lock the doors.
Even if the car is in the garage, keep the doors locked to prevent curious children from climbing inside.
Use sticky notes.
Leave one on your dashboard when your baby is in the backseat.
Add a mirror.
Buy yourself the child safety mirror that attaches to your rearview mirror so that you can see your child at all times.
