If you are older than Gen Z, you’re probably driving wrong.
For decades, drivers were taught to put their hands on the steering wheel at 10 and 2, but that advice predates the airbag. According to Inc, holding your hands there can result in broken arms if there’s ever an accident that deploys the safety device.
Instead, modern drivers ed classes are teaching that the safest way to hold the wheel is at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock and to turn the wheel by shuffling hands in alternation, so that your arm never gets in front of the steering column. (Inc)
