Safety Tips On Comfortable Driving Position.

Driving is stressful, especially driving in areas that are traffic prone were you spend 2-5hours sitting and driving can cause some dangers to your spinal cord that is if you are used to sitting in a bad driving position. There are some tips for you to drive comfortably and also stay healthy.

1. Tilt your steering wheel down: 
Adjust your steering wheel so it points at your chest, not your head or your neck.

2. Move your seat backwards: 
Move your seat back as far as you can while still comfortably reaching the pedals. You should be at least 10 inches from the steering wheel, from your breastbone to the centre of the wheel.

3. Recline the back of the seat slightly: 
If you’re still too close to the steering wheel after moving your seat back, try reclining slightly. If that makes it harder to see the road, try raising your seat or placing a firm non-slippery cushion on the seat. Still closer than 10 inches? You may want to consider pedal extenders.

4. Keep your hands at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock on the steering wheel: 
We recommend that all drivers keep their hands positioned on opposite sides of the steering wheel. This is a more comfortable and stable steering position and it also keeps your hands clear of the airbag.

5. Always wear your seat belt properly: 
Seat belts save lives and prevent injuries. For your seat belt to be effective, it’s important for you to wear it properly. Adjust the seat belt height so that the shoulder strap lies flat against your chest, not on your neck or under your arm. The lap belt or lower strap should be snug across your hips.
