Vehicles can reach dangerously high temperatures in the summer, which means it isn’t just uncomfortable for drivers, but it can also be harmful. Today we’re going to look at a few ways you can stay cool in your truck this summer.
- Use sunscreen
Even when you’re inside a truck, you can still get a sunburn from rays reaching in through the window. Make sure you apply sunscreen to your arms and face frequently. A sunburn will only make you more uncomfortable in the summer heat and can have extreme effects over time.
- Stay hydrated
Always keep a water bottle in your vehicle to stay hydrated. Drinking water will help you stay focused and there’s nothing better than a cool drink on a hot day.
- Use a travel fan
There are many 12 volt fans you can get to have an extra breeze going when you’re behind the wheel. This small accessory can make a big difference.
- Wear a hat
Trucker hats are a well-known accessory for a reason. They aren’t just a style choice, they are also protective. These hats can shield wearers from the sun as well as provide ventilation to keep you cool.
- Park in the shade
When you are parked for a break, make sure you choose a shady spot. This can make a big difference to the temperature of the interior of your truck.
