Research has shown that many drivers are wearing inappropriate footwear and that fashion often outweighs practicality.
Women wearing high heels are risking the heel getting caught and both genders wearing certain shoes or boots with poor grip risk their foot slipping of the pedals when driving.
It is advised to keep a spare pair of shoes in the car for driving, ideally ones that can be fastened securely or laced up and ones that have good grip. Wearing a good pair of shoes is just as important as not drink driving, wearing your glasses or not texting on your phone, as correct footwear makes driving less hazardous.
