What is the first step?
How about the steering lock?
Yes, cars have a mechanism to stop the wheels from steering in the event that someone attempts to take your car without the key. This steering lock keeps ( locks ) the front wheels in a turn position effectively stopping the thief who may have started your car from driving it away.
Also, the locked wheels keep the car turned in the event you are hit while parked and pushed down the hill. The steering lock again keeps the car turned to prevent it from rolling downhill. Without the steering lock activated, the momentum of the rolling car could cause the steering to straighten out which would accelerate the downhill motion.
Did your Driving Instructor in your driving lesson TEACH you this one?
Come, I show you how!
Actually, there is a very important step that should be completed BEFORE this step. Any ideas? Come see us and we will show you. It’s called Cooper Bear! SHH!
And yes I have witnessed a failed driving test because the driver did not know how to deactivate the steering lock.
