Us Canadian’s are used to the cold, mostly. But our American friends, some don’t really know how to deal with cold, so the Detroit Free Press put together a list of things that you should NOT leave in your car when it’s very cold, just in case you didn’t know!
Cellphones: Lithium-ion batteries popular in these devices are particularly vulnerable to extreme cold.
Canned beverages: They might explode, like this.
Musical instruments: Those made of wood may contract with the cold, causing tuning issues and other damage.
Medication: Freezing causes certain drugs to lose their effectiveness, including those that need to be shaken.
Low gas tank: Keeping the gas level above half a tank will prevent fuel lines from freezing.
