Fit tip for any age
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.
