3 Tips for good driving posture

3 Tips for good driving posture


Bad posture in your truck can affect both your health and how long you can comfortably drive.  A few simple tips will help you stay comfortable and drive more effectively.

1. Adjust your seat so that your feet can comfortably access all pedals. Recline your seat no more than 20 degrees to prevent added pressure on your lower back.

2. Some trucks have a telescoping wheel. Adjust the wheel so that your arms can comfortably reach it and that it is not too close to your body.

3. Make sure you can access all controls easily, especially the gear shifter since it will be used the most.
