Three Types Of Footwear You Should Never Wear While Driving

Published

on

Nowadays, many people tend to choose comfortability compared to safety when they are choosing the footwear that they want to use for driving. It can be for driving a car, bus, lorry, or any other vehicle. Little did they know, these simple choices that they made could bring so many consequences towards themselves when they are driving. Certain footwear is not very suitable to be used when driving because they could have their own negative impacts.

These are 3 types of improper footwear that are dangerous to be used while driving:

1) High Heeled Shoes

When the driver is using high heeled shoes, the heel inhibits the driver’s ability to apply an even pressure towards the pedal and only the ball of the foot is able to make contact with the pedal. Other than that, the heel also makes it awkward for the foot to rest evenly and can interfere with the driver’s reaction time if they ever need to stop the vehicle quickly. The driver needs to apply an even pressure towards the pedal so that the brake or clutch pedals could be used effectively by the driver.

2) Barefooted

The barefoot driver also could never run away from its own problems. Bare feet are actually not helping the driver to give an effective way of applying firm and even pressure to the brake. Applying extra pressure with bare feet could also increase the driver’s risk of pain and cramping to happen in the foot. This will cause further hindering their ability to drive safely. If the driver is thinking to wear stockings, the driver’s feet could easily slip on the pedals.

3) Flip-Flop Sandals

Flip-flop sandals might be the most dangerous and also inappropriate footwear to be worn while driving. Most people that wear flip-flop sandals while driving experience near-miss accidents. This particular footwear is considered dangerous because it can easily get stuck under the pedals, slowing the driver’s reaction time in the event a quick break becomes necessary.

A former Indonesian school teacher named Fredi Lugina Priadi becomes a tailor for cat outfits, creating unique costumes and cosplay outfits for cats.

This 39-year-old man had been trying a handful of businesses before finally found this strange yet unique love of creating outfits for cats. Fredi has even tried running a motor repair shop before this.

This tailor gives the people the option of choosing the many ranges of costumes that he has for people that love to dress up their pet cat either going from superhero costumes to even the traditional Indonesian wear.

“At first, my cousins who love cats gave me the idea to make these costumes and I thought it was weird,” said Fredi.

“But it turned out to be funny to see them with costumes,” he said, speaking from his rustic workshop with a sewing machine in Bogor just south of the capital Jakarta,” he added.

Since setting up his online business three years ago, Fredi earns around $210 a month, with an average of 4 costumes sold daily. The price for his costumes ranges between $6 to $10.

A loyal customer, Risma Sandra Irwan, has bought at least 30 of his costumes. Her cat, Sogan, would wear them on special occasions like Eid al-Fitr or Christmas.

“It’s for fun only…it can relieve our stress,” said Risma.

Though Fredi has received some negative comments saying that it’s cruel to dress up an animal, he advises buyers to not keep them in the outfit for too long.
