Ban The High Heels Behind the Wheel

Motoring organisations wish to put a stop to females that don high heels while behind the wheel of a car. The charity for motoring safety “Brake” is arguing for a new ban on platforms, wedges and stilettos. I wonder how this would be recieved on driving lessons with my female students on lessons around Billingham?

The charity revealed that the trend of donning very high heels might lead to serious road accidents and suggested to drivers to stop the fashion. There’s a concern that numerous female drivers have no regard for their own lives and the lives of other motorists. Driving a vehicle is one thing that has got to be taken very seriously.

A survey found that around 36% of ladies drive in high heel shoes. What’s more, it found out that around 38% of women motorists like to drive whilst wearing flip flops with 17% choosing to drive their bare feet. 20 Percent stated that they’re happy to drive in their house slippers and only 36% stated that they only drive in good footwear.

It is not merely women who are required to think about their driving attire. 18% of male drivers are happy to drive in bear feet, 12 Percent in slippers and 26% of them drive in flip flops. Fantastic news though is 52 Percent declare that they always don practical shoes.

It is encouraged that you should keep a pair of good driving shoes in the boot of the car all of the time. If you would not put on a certain kind of shoe on your driving test then you shouldn’t wear it for your normal driving.

Much more amazing is the fact 12% of women drivers drive even while applying their make-up and 16 Percent of males shave when motoring. It’s very simple to treat your vehicle as your rest room but bear in mind it takes merely one lapse in awareness for an accident to happen.
