The Danish summer can be a capricious size with large fluctuations in temperature and with the dramatic weather change, and it can give drivers problems.
the Experience of last summer shows that the majority of calls to the SOS Danish roadside assistance services in July is about overheated cars, flat batteries and punctures after the rain.
It informs the SOS Danish roadside assistance services in a press release.
There is both a view to the heat waves and torrential rains in the forecasts for the weather in the summer. Both give typically the busyness with the SOS Danish Service, who are getting calls from motorists with the crash.
- We feel it immediately, when it has been very hot, or when it has rained heavily. This year, we plan also with the extra bustle in July, because many choose to keep the summer vacation in Denmark, because of the corona, says Anette Bear Juncher, vagtcentralchef at SOS Dansk roadside assistance services.

One of the challenges, as the Danish summer weather can cause, is, according to the SOS Danish roadside assistance services, to torrential rain leads to slippery roadways and thus the risk of accidents.
But the rain also has the side effect that the gravel and pebbles washed out on the road, and that means more punctures. Last summer amounted to punctures approximately 20 percent of all SOS Danish Autohjælps assistance.
- If there is any space in the car, it's a really good idea to carry a spare wheel, so you can get on quickly. It is allowed to run temporarily on a winter tires, as long as you run only from the injury site to the workshop, says Anette Bear Juncher.
another sommerklassiker in the field of roadside assistance is, according to the SOS Danish Service flat batteries. The car battery is on hard work, when the summer holidays offers on longer rides with a turned on air conditioning, GPS and various mobiles and tablets for charging.
- It can be a problem, if one at the same time keeps in the queue, or if the car is stationary for a period of time at the cottage or campsite, says Anette Bear Juncher.
Well every fifth of SOS Dansk Autohjælps assistance over the summer holidays last year was related to the batteries.
