Yeah, the "handle-grab"... ugh.
I do agree it stems from not being in control of the car, but the problem is I don't see any "nice" way of curing the habit. I have tried asking her nicely, and she just doesn't stop. It makes me think maybe she isn't aware of it.
I tried doing the same thing (which just makes me look like a jerk), I tried making a loud cough noise every time she does it (which just egged her on). Of course I tried asking her not to do it politely, explaining that it was distracting and tensed me up, but that didn't work either.
