Whilst it is important to ensure that your driving skills are up to scratch, many young motorists seem to forget one of the basics of safe driving – that of wearing safe and appropriate clothing when behind the wheel.
A recent survey has revealed that a vast proportion of young drivers admit to wearing unsuitable footwear when driving, such as sandals or even high-heels and stilettos!
Young drivers between the ages of 18 to 30 are the most dangerous culprits, with almost one in three admitting to wearing clothing deemed unsuitable for driving, comparing to half of that amount with older drivers.
Experts have said that unless you are wearing shoes with a flat sole, and a good amount of grip, you are risking your feet sliding off the brake and accelerator pedals, which could likely result in a crash.
Don’t endanger yourself and other drivers – ensure that you always wear the appropriate clothing when driving.
Safe driving from Britannia!
