Many European scientists and agencies say that this July was the hottest of all time.
In many European countries, waves of tourists heading south or returning home are met with a new heat wave.
In France, in particular, highway display boards constantly ask drivers to stop more frequently, to cool down, rehydrate and cool down their cars. Since the risk of engine overheating is significantly increased these days. Many rest areas offer free bottled water for people and their pets.
“Our goal is to encourage our drivers to stop and take more frequent breaks. A little more to hydrate, to take stock of the situation, and to protect against the risk of engine overheating,” says Idris Guirous, district manager ( Val de Saône), and the road safety service (APRR).
Many regions of southern Europe are already used to the 40+ degree heat (many European scientists and agencies say that this July was the hottest of all time).
Faced with these high temperatures, many travelers admit that they prefer to stay in their hotel rooms at least until the night.
