I think hitting a spinner in a wreck could do some serious damage.
Dad had them on his old farm tractors. These tractors didn't have
power steering. Most of them were tricycle type with two wheels in the
front. There was a lot of feedback from the wheels. One had to keep a
good grip to hold the steering wheel. The best practice was to use the
spinner only while turning. There wasn't much clearance between the
steering wheels and the driver. The spinner could hit important body
parts if one let the steering wheel go.
If injuries to vehicle operators was an actual concern the
devices would be banned federally as vehicle safety standards
are determined and set by the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration... Since the devices are allowed for disabled
individuals as an adaptive assistance device (which under the
federal ADA law states can not bar assistive/adaptive devices
which help disabled persons,) the laws which prohibit them
seem to be aimed at curtailing misuse of steering wheel
knobs by persons whose only need/want to have them
installed is to be able to perform unsafe and aggressive
driving maneuvers... (a.k.a. "stunt/trick driving")

Well if I owned a post-WWII antique sedan I'd want one of those knobs on my
wheel and exception should be given for same. Of course, what does the guv'ment
know about extra turns lock-to-lock in 1947?

Because back in the 60's some pot smoking, beer drinking guy was balling
a woman who was on his lap while he was driving. The spinner got stuck
on the base of his cock. His cock was inserted in the woman, so it did
not flex, and thus it caused a serious car crash. Both he and the woman
died. Because of this, the government knew that these things were
dangerous, and had to protect us from ourselves. This is the same
reason we're forced to wear those death-traps called "seatbelts", which
trap people in burning cars after a crash. As well as the reason we're
forced to have GFCI outlets in bathrooms, because the government knows
that people on drugs and alcohol like to put a plug in radio under the
water in their bathtub while they bathe, so it sounds like they are at
We are very dangerous people. None of us have any brains, except those
in the government, who are all highly intelligent super beings. In fact
they even have the "Central Intelligence Agency", which are the most
intelligent persons on earth. Be sure to thank your government
officials for caring so much about us, and for ending the natural
process, where the weakest links in the chain of society are supposed to
perish to prevent breeding more stupid people.
