  • In some countries all the people have are 4 X 40 air conditioning (4 windows down and going 40 mph). There kids seem to be fine.  Since it is not very long your child should be fine. Just make sure she is well hydrated and try to avoid sitting still for too long.

  • Yes, be sure she's hydrated and cool her off after the ride.
