It&rsquo;s easy to forget to drink water while on the road, but it&rsquo;s extremely important in order to stay properly hydrated - particularly during the hottest months of the year.&nbsp;
Keeping a couple of bottles of water next to you while you&rsquo;re driving will serve as a constant reminder and make it practical for you to drink water throughout the day.&nbsp;
Keep Tires Inflated
In the higher temperatures of the summer, the chance of tire blowouts increases. Under-inflated tires can further increase the risk for blowouts, so you&rsquo;ll want to be sure you check that your tires are properly inflated before you drive.&nbsp;&nbsp;
Check Your Brakes Regularly
Check your brakes before you start your drive because higher temperatures can result in a loss of friction when the brake parts can&rsquo;t absorb any more heat.&nbsp;
Protect Yourself from the Sun
Spending several hours a day driving means you will have a lot of sun exposure. Don&rsquo;t forget to follow sun safety tips like wearing sunscreen and wearing long sleeves.
Be Aware of Crowded Roads
Roads tend to be a lot more crowded during the summer months with families taking vacations and a lot more people having time off work. Heavy traffic volume presents more dangers for truck drivers, so you&rsquo;ll want to be extra alert and aware of other vehicles on the road.
