comment Volume controls: Why is left down and right up?
Aha, I meant to point this out: I am left-handed and these controls are only accessible by my left hand. However, like many other lefties I have learned to operate most things using either both hands or my right hand (so I think it is just the steering wheel).

@rk. I am not looking for why they did it but rather principles that would support making such decisions in general. I will rephrase the post.
