My last post on how to have a good driving posture landed 16 mails to my box in two days. One of the mails which cut my attention was that written by one Mary who wanted to know the signs of a poor driving posture. This has prompted me to write on the above topic.
- Sitting carelessly or lazily on the driver’s seat.
- A poor driving posture also include hunching of the back while driving.
- Straight arm driving.
- Slouching behind the wheels which can cause back pain.
- Leaning into the wheels which I have seen some people do.
- Stretching your legs to reach the pedals because of poor seat adjustment.
- Spending long hours behind the wheels. Some commercial drivers are guilty of this. Long hours behind wheels can cause spinal injury. It is often advised to have 15 minutes break for every four hours drive.
- Driving without proper back support and headrest which can cause muscles fatigue.
