  • Kids, pets and hot cars

    As summer temperatures heat up, AAA East Central warns drivers about the dangers of leaving children and pets in vehicles.  Temperatures inside a car, even on a mild, sunny day, can reach deadly levels in just 10 minutes.
    Animals are equally impacted by summer heat.  Dogs are not able to sweat like humans do, but instead cool themselves by panting and by sweating through their paws.  If they have only overheated air to breathe, they can collapse; suffer brain damage and die of heatstroke.
