On the one hand, true. On the other hand, bollocks.

Steering Wheel Demon Horns are molded plastic demon horns, sold in pairs, each fitted with outward-pointing screws which serve to affix the horns to the positions of 10 and 2 on the steering wheel (relative to a clock). Steering Wheel Demon Horns serve several purposes: 1. When you grip the horns, you still have full control of the vehicle as your hands are positioned at 10 and 2, 2. they allow you to maintain full control of the vehicle while simultaneously giving the double middle finger to passers-by. Also, for the nostalgic, they would provide an effect reminiscent of riding a bicycle.

       If only there were some kind of motorised bicycle.

       I wish I could get some votes on this so I could know how people feel about it...

       With today's car designs, the airbag is often in the center of the steering wheel, therefore it would seem to me the the *horns* would puncture the airbag if it deployed.

       That's bollocks.

       When you attempt to turn the wheel more than 180° the horns would interfere with your legs. Some sort of collision would no doubt ensue.

       Depends on how you position them, but the fact that they are screwed in would allow you to rotate them outwards so that they would be less likely to "interfere with your legs."

       Surely the original point of the idea would be lost if they weren't protruding radially.

       How about if you just replace the entire steering wheel with a set of Aurochs' horns. Minor modifications to the steering mechanism would ensure that you do not need to turn the horns more than 90 degrees left or right relative to the vertical.
"Wha' about the airbag?" Whine the nay-sayers. "Pah!", says I, "Rebellious drivers are unconcerned when it comes to such frivolities".

       Well I thought it was cool.
