MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Is is illegal to drive barefoot?

Summer is here, we are in the middle of an early June heat wave and people want to air it all out and let their toes fly in the car. But is it illegal?

In most states in the country the answer is no. You will not be fined as a driver for letting your toes air out inside the car. But at the same time that doesn’t mean it is a good idea. A lot of law enforcement say they still encourage people not to do it. It’s always best to drive with footwear that has a good drip so your feet don’t slip off the pedals.

Here in Connecticut there are not currently any state laws that address the driving barefoot issue. Probably best to keep those toes away in the car until you get to the beach.
