With warm weather temperatures upon us, AAA reminds motorists to always carry a small cooler in your vehicle with bottles of cold water. Vehicle breakdowns frequently occur when temperatures are near triple-digits. Tire blowouts, ruptured hoses, overheated engines and broken fan belts are just some of the common problems that occur. If you frequently leave your vehicle parked in direct sunlight, use a protective windshield sun shade. It will help keep the front seat, steering wheel, and safety belt latches cooler to the touch. If you are transporting a child safety seat or booster seat in your vehicle, always place a blanket over the units when they are not in use. Metal latches and plastic vinyl can become dangerously hot when exposed to direct sunlight. Placing a child in a hot seat may result in serious skin burns. If you notice a person or family stranded on a Nebraska roadway, ask a passenger to dial *55 on their cell phone to reach the Highway Helpline. Be prepared to provide the law enforcement agency representative with a description of the vehicle along with the disabled vehicle’s location or nearest mile marker number.
