AAA: Get the Right Grip on Your Steering Wheel


AAA is urging drivers to get a grip — the correct grip that is — on their steering wheel. You may have learned that the best way to hold a steering wheel is to place your hands at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock, but AAA cautions that this may not be the safest position. According to the organization, placing your hands lower helps decrease the risk of hand and arm injuries from an airbag and increases vehicle control. Check out the above video for safer options.
