I was always told 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock. But have been reading a little info that suggests 9 and 3 is better if in the event of airbag deployment and your arms/hands wont be thrown up in to your face.
Actually, I think it was more like 5 and 7? I never do it.
Are you guys sure? I thought it was the right hand holding the cell phone up to your ear, and the left hand holding your coffee and your cigarette, with the pinkie steering...
I think it was Natysr who was in a wreck and ended up with burns from the airbag. She mentioned she keeps her hands as low as possible to avoid that (knock on wood) in the event of a crash.
I hope she chimes in.
The wrist draped over the steering wheel, at directly 12 o'clock. Of course, this only works if you have your seat leaned way back, and are sitting kinds sideways in the seat. That way, you look cool at all times.
Or so my neighbor thinks. He's straight up gangsta.
