Modifying Your Driving to Prevent Accidents – 3 Drive with both hands on the wheel!

3. Drive with both hands on the wheel. Two hands on the wheel allows you more control over the car if an emergency situation were to arise. Imagine having one hand leisurely resting on it when you have to swerve out of the way – you lose that precious split second in adjusting your position that could mean the difference between safety and an accident.

Keep your hands in the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions. While this isn’t necessarily the most comfortable, this position does allow you the most flexibility should you suddenly need to adjust your course.
