A new study has revealed that high heels are making driving dangerous for over 12 million women.
The survey revealed that 80% of female motorists wear improper footwear while driving. 66% admitted that they chose to wear high heels, while a shocking 18% said they did not wear shoes at all.
Insurance figures show that women driving in stilettos could be endangering their lives, with 4 out of 5 female drivers admitting to wearing inappropriate footwear.
It has emerged that a number of deaths at zebra crossings in Britain trebled in the past year. This is believed to be due to women driving in heels and not having the same reaction time as those wearing sensible shoes.
10% of female motorists have said that they have met with an accident or only just averted a mishap because of their footwear, however 17% of female drivers keep a pair of shoes on their vehicle to change while driving.
