“Clack, clack, clack, clack”, just like castanets, hold tight onto the wheel

At what clock position should you grab the steering wheel: ten past ten or a quarter past nine?

According to the Spanish Traffic Agency (DGT), at ten past ten. You must always hold it with both hands or risk an 80 euro fine. You can only hold it with one hand to change gears or operate a button on the vehicle.

However, experts recommend driving at a quarter past nine for convenience. In fact, automotive brands design steering wheels with spokes in the diameter. And remember to rest every two hours, when you take longer trips.
