I always drive with one hand, it's a habit know. When i'm speeding and i have make a sharp turn then i use 2 hands. But most of the time when i'm driving i use one hand to drive. It really depends on the situation. How you drive with one hand or with two?

Seem like that is habit for me to drive with one hand to.I guess the only time I use both hands is when im turning or there is alot of traffic and Im trying to be extremely careful.

i noticed this to many drivers... especially to drivers who are really good and confident at what they do already. but still, whenever i see people just driving in one hand, i get nervous in their behalf. maybe because i am nervous myself when driving. take care!

I mostly drive with one hand unless I'm in town or in heavy traffic. It just depends on the situation like you said.

I usually drive with one hand as well. The only times i drive with both hands is if it is raining really hard or a snow storm and I am a little bit nervous.

I am living way out in the country and I would be taking my life in my hands if I even attempted to drive with one hand. I could end up with no hands and it is not worth it. There are so many potholes in our roads that it needs two hands to try to control the car and speeding is out of the question as I would be likely to burst a tyre if I hit a pothole. It is also against the law, so this is a good enough reason for using both hands while driving.

The correct position to drive is with hands at the ten to two position. Well, that's what I'm told anyway. I, like you, drive with one hand. I don't hold the wheel, but more like drape it over the top of it. Probably not the safest way to drive, but, hey, I'm still here after 20yrs of driving!

It depends on the road ..!! one hand or two hands. If the road is all smooth and long for the easy swift of car ,I use one hand but when the roads are hell like then I prefer two hands. I must say when I am in hurry I use two hands. If I have to choose one from your option then I would say two hands .

It completely depends on the situation, but I almost always drive with one hand. The other one is normally resting on the gearstick or on my lap. Of course I use both when parking etc. but with power steering on most cars, you only need both hands when you need to turn the wheel more than halfway round.

I drive with one hand. I find it more comfortable. I'm teaching my son how to drive and I tell him that he has to drive with two hands when he is learning.

I was a professional driver and was taught to drive with both hands. I still drive mostly with two hands. That is to be sure I can control the vehicle if an emergency arises. I am not a speeder and drive to survive. I let all the crazies go by and aviod them as much as possible.

I always use both my hands while driving. I live in an area where the people drive like freaking idiots and most the time end up driving in the wrong lane or when going around curves end up in your lane. So I always have to be really attentive when out driving. Maybe once I move from here I will be able to relax some, but for now both hands stay firmly planted on the steering wheel.

I haven't got much practice here in the US, but in my native country, I was a reckless driver until I almost figured in an accident. That's why from then on, and even if I would dare to drive here in the States, I shall be driving with two hands even if the car is an automatic. Better safe than sorry for me. Take care on the road, and happy myLotting!

I think it's better to drive with two hands. I can't make any mistakes to it. It's dangerous for myself and others. Such kind of mistakes I will try to avoid.
