    3 Points to remember to have a comfortable and safe driving experience

    1. Keeping everything comfortable and adjusting everything

    The steering wheel must always be tilted toward the chest, with the top of the wheel even with the shoulder. Use the feature that lets you change the height of your steering wheel to get it in the right place. If you are comfortable and the distance between your chest and the steering wheel is optimum, you are likely to drive safely. 

    Also, you should adjust your seat so that you are seated comfortably. The rear-view and side-view mirrors should be adjusted so that you have the correct view. Also make sure that there are no distractions when you are driving the car. 


    2. Stay relaxed and stress-free

    After you are comfortable in the car, you should check that your wrists are at the correct distance on the steering wheel without you having to put any effort. When you're driving, your arms and legs should be slightly bent to avoid putting too much strain on them. Your range of motion tends to be limited if you overextend your arms or legs or sit too close to the steering wheel. This makes it harder to change direction quickly or step on a different pedal. Adjust your reach to the steering wheel, so you can find a comfortable position that you can hold for a longer time without getting tired.

    3. Keep driving in a "natural" way

    When changing gears in a car with a stick shift, only the foot should move when the brakes or accelerator are used. Don't forget to keep your hands at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions on the steering wheel. This will give you a natural and comfortable grip. Also, when making tight turns, don't cross your arms. If you are driving smoothly, you should be able to handle the car better. 


    Remembering the above three rules will help you drive in a way that is safe, relaxing, and free of stress. Driving safely is necessary not only for yourself, but to safeguard the lives of other passengers in your car, pedestrians and other vehicles on the road. Even a small problem for the driver can become a big problem for others. Therefore, ensure everyone's safety when you are driving on the road.
