Barefooters are well aware that it is completely legal to drive barefoot. There was research done way back in 1994, by Jason Heimbaugh, in which he contacted each of the 50 states. Yet, it still remains a common myth.
So it is nice to see a new article in the Wisconsin State Journal that asks, “Is it legal to drive barefoot in Wisconsin?”
The answer is of course, “YES!”
In fact, the state trooper they ask the question to, Jim Larson, even goes so far as to say:
For drivers who wear heels or other shoes that make driving difficult, Larson even said he’d encourage them to drive barefoot.
It is nice to see this sort of common sense.
