Fit tip for any age

The Amherst News - - COMMUNITY -

Proper steer­ing wheel place­ment and where you place your hands is some­thing any­one, any age can ad­just to im­prove safety.

There should be a min­i­mum of 10-inches clear­ing be­tween you and the steer­ing wheel for proper air bag de­ploy­ment, CarFit tech­ni­cian Beckey Langille says.

Hand place­ment is also not what it used to be any­more.

Langille says the old adage of plac­ing your hands at the 10 and 2’o clock po­si­tion is be­ing re­placed with 9 and 3 o’clock so your arms are not im­pacted by the air bag if it de­ploys.
