When the outside temperature is only 70 degrees, a parked car’s interior can heat up to a temperature of 120 degrees in just 15 minutes and that’s even with the windows cracked open.
By placing an item in the back seat that you will need when you reach your destination can help as reminder to check the back seat when getting out of the car.
