Whether you drive a car with a manual transmission or an automatic rental, some drivers still drive the way their instructor showed them. Unfortunately, this may not be a good practice today. For a long time, the main lesson of the courses was to put the hands of the steering wheel in the "10 and 2 o'clock" position. If you use this method, you are exposed to some risks that your instructor could not have foreseen. They are largely due to safety improvements, such as airbags. That is why modern transport organizations recommend hand positions "9 and 3 o'clock".
