A while back I did a "30 Word Thursday" about where you place your hands on the steering wheel.
I knew when I posted it that 30 words were not enough so here's the expanded version.
Back in the dark ages, we were taught to hang on to "10" and "2." Recently I heard that "3" and "9" were better.
I've experimented and I find them both comfortable.
I remember as a teen defiantly driving with one hand. I'm not sure what I did with the other but I knew how cool I looked so I threw caution to the wind. I was the only teen that could drive that way safely. No matter what the driver's ed teacher said.
I have heard about deaf people driving with their knees so their hands were free to "chat" with whoever was sitting shotgun. Yikes!
I rarely drive one-handed anymore. I guess the caution factor finally kicked in - must be an age thing, eh?
I could go on and on about people driving and texting, driving while applying lipstick and driving and munching a Big Mac but I believe I've already covered that in a earlier blog.
So. Where are your hands?
