Fairfax County Traffic Safety Officer Speaks to Fairfax Lions

Posted on August 25, 2018

Private First Class Christina M Gaizick of Fairfax County Police Traffic Safety Services spoke at the Lions dinner meeting on August 21st.

Private First Class Christina M Gaizick

Christina gave us a wonderful refresher on safe driving, including updates due to technology.  For example, instead of the placing your hands at the 10 and 2 o’clock positions on the steering wheel (as most of us were taught), the recommendation now is 4 and 8 o’clock.  This is to reduce the chance of air-bags forcing your hands back into your face in an accident.  And, with 4 and 8 positions, “shuffle steer” the wheel thru your hands when turning – no hand-over-hand movements.
