Mensagem:  It also means that the passengers are scared to death!!  When the driver has a white knuckled grip on the steering wheel the passengers are probably aware of the situation and very worried.  Think about going down a really steep road in the Andes mountains on a very slippery road in the rain and you know that your tires have no tread and you're slipping on most of the curves.  Tension builds, you grip the steering wheel and your knuckles turn white because you are cutting off the blood circulation.  Your hands cramp up.  A curve approaches.  The car doesn't make the curve.  You hurtle off into...into.....into.....wait what's that noise?  It's not the passengers screaming....it's your Mom telling you to wake up and go downtown to take the vestibular!!
