Today: Shirley's Husband's Terrible Advice

safe driving tips

Dear Tom and Ray:

My husband tells me I should "wiggle" my steering wheel when I take a curve because it gives you better traction, especially in rain or snow. ... Is this so?

-- Shirley

TOM: No. He's trying to kill you, Shirley. Keep a close eye on him.

RAY: And don't listen to his advice about how it's quicker to use the elevator shaft instead of waiting for the elevator.
