Can you drive without your hands touching the wheel?

 article about Can you drive without your hands touching the wheel?

I remember when I was a small child I was sitting on my father's lap and driving the car...well, in all honesty just turning the steering-wheel, but I remember I was quite good at it. And now to think about it, I think I was a lot better at it back then than I am now that I'm driving alone. My father sometimes, on long roads, didn't use his hands at all, steering the car with his knees. Can you do that, drive a car without your hands touching the wheel?

Fortunately, I have to say, my father was and still is quite good at it, but should you really do it? Even if you can, that is? The answer, of course, is that no, you shouldn't. And even more so if you are still a new driver. And to address the issue of driving safety Celebrate My Drive and State Farm have joined their forces to help reduce teen crashes and deaths, asking all drivers to think 2n2. If you don't know what it is, it means 2 eyes on the road and 2 hands on the wheel. And just in case you didn't notice, the request/suggestion talked about eyes and hands, not knees and elbows.

Car crashes have been the number one reason of teen deaths for three decades and as such, it's an issue we should all take seriously. We should all think about what we are doing while driving, are we making positive choices? Are we actually following the road? Are we actually staying safe?
