As those summer temperatures start to cause a sweat AAA Texas is offering some tips on how to keep your kids and pets safe.

The autoclub’s Doug Shupe tells us that even on a mild summer day, the temperature in your car can climb over 120 degrees. He says that can lead to some deadly consequences if you leave a person or pet in your car.

Shupe says it’s unfortunate but it does happen and there are several ways to prevent tragedies.

He advises that if you have a child in the backseat, leave some sort of reminder for yourself. He suggests putting a toy on the seta next to you or put your cell phone in the back seat with the child.

Your family pet is at risk as well. He says the best advice, never leave them in the car, especially when it’s hot.
