Yeah, same here. But he is in redneck country so maybe that "concept" of "shoes" is just for them city folk.usofrob said:Does it seem odd to anyone else they in the last picture, they aren't wearing shoes? I like to drive that way, but it seems a bit dangerous to walk out on the streets without at least sandals.
right here! I hate driving with shoes. They are big & bulky. Plus it's more comfortable. It's a lot easier for me to use the pedals quickly because i can bend my feet and slide them off the pedals.JonM3Coupe said:Who else likes to drive without shoes?
I was taught to drive without shoes. It's a whole lot easier working out where pedals are, and where the bite is on the clutch, without the interference of soles. (Thats what the instructor said anyways ..).JonM3Coupe said:You drive without shoes? Man, I could never, ever drive without shoes. I need the flat, broad plane of a singularly grippy surface in order to feel comfortable with the pedals. Without shoes, I become hyper-aware of my toes, and the arches of my feet.

Urban Myth. It's not illegal in any state - although a lot of people (including police officers) believe it is. I even had a police officer teaching my driver's training class in high school (in the late 60s tell us it was illegal. I challenged him to show me the law as I handed him the Vehicle Code Book. He couldn't show me the law. He wasn't happy. Not the smartest thing for a 16 year old to do to the local cop...huggy bear said:What's the reasoning behind "driving without shoes is illegal"?
Just take your pants off. Then they won't notice you're barefoot ...Randy Chase said:On the RoadTrip (tm) I was pulled over by some officers (they only wanted to talk about the car.
But I was barefoot at the time. The one guy said "hey.. you don't have shoes on." I was very concerned they would make a big deal of that.
I saw something similar on cops once. Also based on what Ive seen on COPS if you're a male truck driver dressed as a female hooker the cops will forget they caught you speeding.Gromit said:Just take your pants off. Then they won't notice you're barefoot ...
