Hot trucks and flat tires cause drivers to sweat even more

When the temperature rises, people are warned not to over exert themselves or they could suffer heat-related illnesses.

Trucks can suffer the same problem. The heat is causing headaches for trucker drivers and fleet operators, ranging from stalled vehicles to flat tires.

The Daily Press in Virginia features a story
on how one pickup driver found that out, when his truck was idled by the excessive heat.

According to a manager for the AAA Mid-Atlantic, heat related calls for roadside assistance are now matching the number of calls received in a snowstorm.

The good news is that you don’t have to shovel excess heat off your driveway and sidewalks.
