I always have used either 11 and 3 or 1 and 9. It fits most city driving and gives a bit of extra control. Always pull the wheel and never push. When turning a tight corner, be sure to use hand over hand if necessary, never take both hands off the wheel in a corner. Laziness comes in to play on highways often, sometime s even city driving (using one hand at 12). If you are going 20-25 mph, nbd, but a little faster, 11 and 3 are the best positions.
