Is It Illegal to Drive Without Shoes?


Depending on what the weather is doing in the Provo-area, you may be tempted to drive around barefoot. But is it illegal to drive without shoes? Nope! Not only is it not illegal to drive barefoot in UT – but it’s not against the law to drive without shoes in any other state. So, now you know that driving barefoot is legal in all 50 states, it’s essential to think about how safe it is. Brent Brown Toyota has your answer below! Trust the Orem dealership for important car buying and service tips and tricks.



Is Driving Without Shoes Safe?

While you might get asked to leave a Lehi-area restaurant, or it could be quite difficult to truly explore Utah County, you can drive your Toyota vehicle barefoot to get there. The question is, however, should you? Even though the temptation is there to feel your bare foot on the gas pedal, doing this can be dangerous. Brent Brown Toyota has a few reasons why you should rethink driving barefoot:

  • Regardless of whether there’s precipitation around Draper, there can be fluids near the pedal – which increases the chances that our foot will slip on the gas or brake pedal.
  • If you remove your shoes while driving on the Provo roads, your shoes and socks could get caught under the gas or brake pedal – which impairs your ability to accelerate or to brake.
  • Toyota vehicles are safe, but accidents do happen. If you get in an accident and the police determine that driving barefoot was the cause of the accident, you can be cited for reckless driving.

Orem drivers should always remember, it’s not just you out there on the roads: You can endanger other drivers. So think about the barefoot driving risks you’re willing to take.

Further Barefoot Driving Considerations

Now that you know all about the risks of driving barefoot, it’s up to you to decide: Is it worth driving a car around Lehi barefoot? While the free feeling may be excellent, maybe consider keeping a spare pair of shoes in your trunk – just in case.
