In the same article, our colleagues recalled the procedure to follow if you are the victim of discomfort. From the first warning signs – such as sweating, chest pain, loss of vision, paralysis of a limb, or severe headache –, the first instinct is to stop safely and set your warnings. Afterwards, it is advisable to get out of the vehicle and lie down on the ground. If you’re alone and can’t get out of the car, keep your seat belt on.
