Re: Where Do You Position Your Hands On The Steering Wheel Whilst Driving?

My hands are generally at about twenty to two. I dislocated my left shoulder playing football a few years back, and holding my arm up at ten to gets quite painful after a short while.
If I'm pressing on then I go to ten to.

Right hand on wheel at two o' clock with right elbow on the window ledge, left hand on the arm rest. (In the TSpark, no armrest in the QV).

Ten to two mostly, but shift them about (hands as well! ) to keep comfortable. I make a point of not driving around with my hand on my nob as I've heard it's not good for you in the long run

Keep my hands close to my thumbs on the buttons, I tend to find this stops me from keeping my hand on my knob....

10 to 2, except in traffic, when it's twenty to two, with the left hand resting on my knee. (Alfa's always seem to come with exactly the right driving position for this).

Re: Where Do You Position Your Hands On The Steering Wheel Whilst Driving?

Right thumb resting on top of "spoke" with right fingers sort of wrapped around the wheel.

Left hand not on wheel and doing other things (ok, ok) or nothing at all.

If a bit of determined cornering is called for then both hands are placed in whatever position is best for the particular manouvre (as the actress said to the bishop etc).

Re: Where Do You Position Your Hands On The Steering Wheel Whilst Driving?

Thinking towards IAM, so I'm trying to keep hands at ten to two these days.

As opposed to one hand on wheel and and one on gearstick...

...or one hand on wheel and other hand with single digit raised in the traditional gesture used to show appreciation for the skills of my fellow road users

Re: Where Do You Position Your Hands On The Steering Wheel Whilst Driving?

I use either my teeth or nose...



When in heavv traffic or aggressive driving, quarter to three, but if not, usually with just one hand, and I change it's position from time to time to make it less boring... And I drive an automatic.
