Hand at 9 to-3 or just slightly higher, at 10 to-2.

If not placed above the 11 and 1 O'Clock hours, the chances of the arms to be injured in this case are minimal, while control over the wheel, which will help to prevent the airbag from deploying to begin with, will be maximized. An 8 to-4 grip allows for the worst control, and that's the most important thing.

About the mirrors: just open them to the point where the car's edge is bearly visible, or not seen at all.
