Car Talk

This advice from hubby is bad news

Syndicated columnists

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.
