I'm a pretty lazy guy and will keep my hands in my lap and hold on to the steering wheel with my thumb and index finger. While turning/backing out, I'll use both or either

I use both, but usually not at the same time. I tend to use my left hand at first, then midway through my drive. I'll switch to my right hand. I then might go back to my left.

Sometimes left, sometimes right, sometimes both, sometimes I use my knees or elbows. I even use public transportation!

I just go wherever however.

Since I'm learning how to drive, I use both, unless I'm shifting gears

both, isn't it a law or something to keep both hands on the wheel


It is, though technically considering I and many others drive a standard half the time I am busy shifting between gears with one hand. Thus I am much of the time driving with my left on the steering wheel and my right working the stick.

After all what kind of weakling drives an automatic?



The fastest cars in the world today are automatics.

Corvette Z06, 8-speed automatic

Ferrari LaFerrari, 7-speed dual clutch automated manual

Both Ferrari and Lamborghini have dropped manual

That 987 horsepower Bugatti Veyron monster... Dual Clutch Transmission.

I drive an Infiniti G37 (Nissan Skyline 370GT) with 328 horsepower. I could drive it like a manual but there's no point; The Drive Sport mode (DS) yields the same time around a race track as manual shifting, and people have tested it.

My car's standard so left hand on the wheel and right on the joystick


Moved to Polls forum.

I don't drive much since I haven't owned a car in a long time, so I public transportation most of the time. When I did have a car and did drive a lot my left hand was always used most on the wheel--both because I'm left-handed, and because most of the cars I've owned had standard transmissions.

Whether I drive an automatic or manual I always only use my left hand. Plus I am left handed.
Personally I think the both hands rule is dumb. If you're turning you have to take one hand off the wheel otherwise they sort of get in the way of each other. If you're going straight, it only takes one hand to hold the wheel still.
When I do a sharp turn, then I use my right hand to hold the wheel while I move my left hand back to the other side of the steering wheel, if needed.

Left. Gotta shift with the right. It became such a habit that even if I drive an automatic car, I still just use my left to steer and my right hand chills on the e-brake or arm rest.

Ferrari , Lamborghini, Bugatti are overpriced Italian trash so no surprise they became even trashier. But either way it's not about speed mate, it's about skill and control. As in skill and control is what separates a real driver from 90 year old grandmothers.

No driver worth their salt is going to trust a machine to do their shifting for them.
