Women Risk Their Lives by Driving in High Heels

Inconvenience of high heels has so far been restricted only to difficulty in walking on a uneven stretch, or soreness, but a new study has revealed that high heels are also making driving dangerous for over 12 million women.

The study called stilettos an inappropriate footwear for driving and said that women are actually risking their lives by driving in heels.

The survey conducted by women's car insurance concern Sheilas Wheels revealed that almost 80 per cent of female motorists wear improper footwear while driving.

Sixty-six per cent admitted that they chose to wear high heels at the wheel, and 18 pct said they did not wear shoes at all.

Ten per cent said they have met with an accident or almost averted a mishap because of their footwear, and 17 pct of the female motorists kept a pair of shoes in their vehicle to change while driving.

However, only 23 pct wanted to switch to shoes while driving, though they knew it was safer. Almost 65 per cent said that they need better guidelines for appropriate footwear.

Dianne Ferreira, of the road safety charity Brake, said: that high heels and flip-flops can really weigh down a persons ability to drive.

"High heels, platforms and flip-flops can seriously hamper your ability to drive safely, and could have fatal consequences. It only takes a few seconds to change your shoes before each journey to help ensure you arrive safely," the Daily Mail quoted her, as saying.

Recently, 42-year-old Julie Hunter was given an eight-month suspended sentence and imposed a seven-year driving ban for hitting fitness instructor Debbie Riches, in a test drive.

Judge Anthony Goldstaub QC said that Hunter's stiletto ankle boots might have made her lose control of the Alfa Romeo Spyder.
