“The warm temperatures and busy holiday travel of summer put extra demands on both car and

driver,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “Always buckle up, designate a sober driver, adhere to the speed limit and avoid becoming distracted behind the wheel. With a little planning and preparation you will be able to reduce the risk of a tragedy occurring this summer.”

CHP officers remind motorists to never leave children or pets in unattended vehicles, which can reach triple digits in less than an hour, according to the National Weather Service.

“There are typically multiple calls on any hot day,” said Deputy Wood of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, in a previous interview. “It’s typically when you have multiple cold days then you have a hot day. On the weekends, we tend to get a lot (of these calls).”

“We’ll have at least four to five calls per day during the summer,” Wood said.

Frequent inspection of radiator systems, which can prevent summer breakdowns, are also suggested.

Current oil changes can also prevent damage to engines, which are put under extra stress when exposed to high temperatures.

Unnecessary items, like lighters and batteries, can melt or explode when left in heat and should cleaned out of vehicles, as they can leak hazardous materials and harm passengers. 

The CHP also suggests that all motorists carry a roadside emergency kit containing fresh water, shelf-stable food, a cell phone and charger, sunscreen, a first-aid kit, a spare tire, a tire inflator, a car jack, a lug wrench, jumper cables, an emergency signal, a basic tool kit, maps, a flashlight and extra batteries. Motorists can assemble their own kits or purchase them from a retailer.
