Nashville is in the middle of a heat wave with temperatures reaching nearly 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. Extreme heat can put everyone in danger, and it can even affect your daily commute and how to handle running errands around town.

Keep these tips in mind to stay safe during this heat wave and any other extremely hot day this summer:

When the air temperature is around 100 degrees, the surface temperature of the asphalt can be significantly hotter. That level of heat can be extremely hard on your tires, especially if they are under or overinflated. Improperly inflated tires are prone to failure or blowouts in normal conditions, and extreme heat makes those situations even more likely to occur.

Rolling down the window can help make driving or sitting in traffic more comfortable on hot days, but when temperatures are extremely high, only air conditioning can truly provide relief. If your vehicle’s AC doesn’t work, avoid driving if possible. Sitting in a hot car, especially when stationary, can put you and your passengers at risk of heat stroke.

When temperatures hit extreme levels and stay there for several days, it can cause some of your vehicle’s essential fluids to evaporate. Check your vehicle’s oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield wiper fluid regularly to ensure their levels are at the manufacturer recommendations.

At Ponce Law, we hope everyone stays safe during this heat wave, and if you or someone you love gets injured in a crash that wasn’t your fault, don’t hesitate to reach out to our experienced Nashville car accident lawyers.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
