6:15 a.m. update: Quiet on the roads

It's another hot and sticky day out there, so here is some advice from our friends at AAA.  To avoid breakdowns, check the car's coolant levels, hoses and belts, tires, oil, battery, air and fuel filters.

Another tip: Have an emergency kit in the car just in case. It should include a flashlight with extra batteries, warning devices, such as flares or reflective triangles, first aid kit, a fully charged cell phone.

So far we've had no crashes or stalls on the system, and that has made for a nice commute so far in the early stages of the rush hour.
