The hand-to-hand steering method is used for making turns. One hand pushes up on the steering wheel while the other hand slides to the top and then pulls the wheel down, repeating the action until the turn is complete. This type of steering permits the driver to make steering inputs ranging from just a few degrees to gross adjustments up to a half turn of the wheel, while keeping both hands on the wheel for precision adjustments.
