Best Answer

Power Steering

2nd Answer:

True, but automobiles have their turning wheels angled toward the rear of the car, just like the front wheels of a shopping cart. Friction between tires and road work to keep the turning wheels lined up back to front, and it takes a little effort to turn the wheels away from their normal back-front alignment.

The effort to turn the wheels is much less if the auto has . . . Power Steering per the above answer!
