ハンドル

The word ハンドル is often used in set expressions like:

ハンドルをにぎる(にぎる=hold/grasp)

ハンドルをきる(きる=cut/switch)

 

ハンドル is a transliteration of the English word, “handle,” but in the above examples it is used as a “steering wheel”.

ハンドルをにぎる means to “take the driver’s seat”

ハンドルをきる means to "turn a steering wheel."

 

These days the word ステアリングホイール  is also used, but still many people call it ハンドル.
