Question:

To maintain a firm grip on the steering wheel, you should

A place your left hand at the 7 to 9 o’clock position and your right hand at the 3 to 5 o’clock position.
Explaination

The South Carolina Driver's Manual recommends placing your left hand at the 7 to 9 o’clock position and your right hand at the 3 to 5 o’clock position. (Note: Years ago, the recommended positions were 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock. But those positions can be dangerous with modern cars that have airbags. The driver's airbag deploys out of the steering wheel at very high speed. It might drive your hands into your face or even injure your hands.)
