I drive. A lot.
I live in the suburbs and the majority of my life happens in the city, meaning there’s a good deal of commuting in my week. I love my car, but even the most comfortable seat won’t feel good for long periods of time if not positioned correctly. Not to mention, a car seat must be positioned properly for safety’s sake, too. Driving 6 inches away from the steering wheel is no safe.
40% of us claim that sitting causes back and neck pain. Forty-freakin-percent. That’s a lot of us feeling pretty, pretty uncomfortable. Sitting too close, too far, too high, too low, without lumbar support, without your wheel at the right distance and level will all affect how you feel when driving and how safe you are. Sitting too close to the wheel, for example, which is especially prevalent among shorter drivers under 5 feet, 4 inches, can be fatal.
