Abstract:
The current study estimates about 5 percent of the U.S. female population sits closer than 10 inches from the steering wheel; 35 percent for the smallest 10 percent of the female population. Of the females sitting closer than 10 inches, 66 percent sit within 9-10 inches, and 17 percent sit within 8-9 inches. In a separate study, drivers sitting within 9-10 inches were able to increase this distance to 10 inches or more and still drive comfortably in a number of cars by making a few minor seating adjustments.
