Course Outline

When you are operating in rough terrain, hold the steering wheel with your thumbs pointed up. With or without power steering on your vehicle, hitting a rock, stump, or ditch can cause the steering wheel to jerk violently. If your thumbs are wrapped around the steering wheel, serious injury can occur.
