​【问】

We hope that our work will help with technological solution to ensure that older drivers stay safer ____ the wheel(方向盘).

A. before     B. behind

答案:behind

问题:用before表达“坐在方向盘前面”可以吗? 

【答】

理解这句的关键,不是区别before和behind的词义,而是要理解behind the wheel才是地道地英语表达方式。

再如:Modern America was born on the road, behind a wheel. 现代美国人天生就是在路上,在车上。(2018年高考浙江卷)
