Steering wheels: Is removable the next big thing?

Many people will be familiar with well-used coach or bus steering wheels. They are not often pleasant things.

The company says there are 629 colony-forming units of bacteria on average steering wheels, compared to 172 on a toilet seat. Subject to interest, Pailton will offer it to vehicle OEMs. Go to stand 319 to have your say.
