Do your shoes matter when it comes to car safety?

You know that there are some important steps that you need to take in order to drive safely. For example, obey traffic rules, make sure that your vehicle is in good condition and don't text while you're behind the wheel.

Now, add "wear the right shoes" to that list because it turns out that your footwear may have a lot to do with your safety on the road. Here's how to stay safe where your shoes are concerned:

1. Keep a towel in your car.

A towel comes in handy in order to keep your brake and gas pedal dry when there's bad weather. That's the best way to make sure that your shoes -- of any type -- don't have problems staying on the pedals.

2. Don't wear flip-flops or slippers to drive.

While flip-flops are comfortable, they're also terribly easy to lose. If your shoe falls off while you're driving, it can be a distraction. It can also get stuck under a pedal at the wrong moment and lead to an accident. Slippers have similar issues. They may be the ultimate "comfort wear" on your feet, but they're dangerous.

3. Avoid high heels.

Both ordinary pumps as well as stilettos can cause accidents when you drive -- something that many women already realize. Pumps have a slick sole that can easily slide off a pedal and the angle of stilettos make it almost impossible to use the correct pressure on the brakes. Plus, stiletto heels can get caught on one of the pedals rather easily.

4. Skip platform shoes and heavy boots.

A sole that's too thick and heavy can be just as dangerous as one that's too thin and slick. A really thick boot can restrict the movement of your ankle and make it hard to judge how much pressure is enough when you're driving -- causing you to accelerate faster than you intend.

A lot of drivers solve their footwear problem by keeping a comfortable pair of sneakers with good treads on them in their cars. This easy way to help minimize the possibility of a bad car accident.
