There are few things that are worse than having to get into a stiflingly hot car whilst trying to work out how to quickly crank up the AC and roll down the windows.

And with forecasters predicting that the UK is set to be hotter than Mexico City this bank holiday weekend, Brits are looking for the best way to cool down their vehicles - and stat.

But you don’t need to get all hot and bothered in the upcoming warmer weather, there’s a way to cool your car down in seconds before you even step foot in it. Check out the video below:

Many content creators have tried out the trend, dubbed the ‘TikTok window hack’ and have been surprised themselves by the results.

Fellow drivers in the comments section have also been left astonished, with one social media user taking to Driving Test Success' version of the video to comment: “Omg I had to do it and it works dude.”

Meanwhile, others seemingly already knew about the hack before it became a thing on the social media site, with one person saying: “For real y’all figured out just now?” while another added, “I’ve been doing that for years.”

So, if you’re keen to learn how to do this already pretty popular hack for cooling your car down, keep reading. All you need is your car key fob.

Simply hold the unlock button down on the key, and your windows will simply roll down all on their own. Impressive, right?

But there’s another factor to be aware of, aside from warm weather, ahead of the bank holiday weekend - and it’s every driver’s worst nightmare: traffic.

Brits heading away from home over the weekend need to brace themselves for festival goers and holidaymakers on the roads, as an amber traffic warning has been released across the UK.

The AA predicts that 45 percent of UK drivers will be heading on at least one journey away from their workplace between Friday and Monday, where an estimated 15 million trips will be made on the roads.

Traffic is believed to peak on Saturday between the hours of 10am and 4pm, whilst busy areas will include the M4/M5 interchange near Bristol, the M1 between the M25 and Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, the M6/M42 interchange in Birmingham and the M62 between Liverpool and Manchester.

They also suggest that traffic will increase once again from Monday afternoon, as Brits return from their various events and getaways.
