Now that the weather is warmer, the DMV is warning drivers that spring sandals and flip flops can become a driving hazard.
The shoes can slip off and get wedged under the brake or accelerator. Driving without any shoes is also dangerous and high heels can stick in the floormat when people are trying to brake or accelerate.
Spokeswoman Melanie Stokes says people should keep a pair of shoes in the car, just for driving. Something like a tennis shoe or one that laces up with a rubber sole is the best idea. The key to driving safely is to stay in control of the car.
