3- You are aware of all of the heat precautionary actions so I want to state something that many are experiencing right now. The heat affects “attitudes” as we all know but when that attitude affects your driving and the way you treat folks, that’s a different ball game. Do the best you can not to drive when you are highly distressed. Take the extra time to cool down so to speak. We all handle the heat differently and patience levels do vary. When that attitude is in a bad place, accidents happen. Don’t want to see anyone hurt or hurt someone because you were in a bad place. Do what we tell folks to do when they get hot, hydrate properly and cool off.
HAVE A GOOD DAY AND STAY AS COOL AS POSSIBLE.
