[Anglo-Saxon stéoran]. The perfection of steering consists in a vigilant attention to the motion of the ship's head, so as to check every deviation from the line of her course in the first instant of its commencement, and in applying as little of the power of the helm as possible, for the action of the rudder checks a ship's speed.

Sometimes a steering wheel is better than a guitar

Let's be clear. This was an execution. Andrew Brown was in his driveway. The sheriff truck blocked him in his driveway so he could not exit his driveway, andrew had his hands on his steering wheel – he was not reaching for anything, he was not touching anything, he wasn't throwing anything around. He has his hands firmly on the steering wheel.
Now we can know what the driver will do before they have done it. You can look 0.4 seconds into the future. That is very good because we can compensate for that, for instance, in an anti-skid system, if you know, for example, that the driver will pull the steering wheel 80 degrees to the left, you can pull a little more on the right side to compensate. You can compensate for the driver because the driver doesn’t really know how the wheels are aligned, but the system can measure them.
The most stupid man is not the one who acts or speaks improperly, but he who consigns the steering wheel of his destiny to a religious man.
