We live in a fashion-conscious world today. While it seems quite odd to be talking about what to wear while driving a car, it still can make a huge difference on how safe and comfortable your driving experience is.
Now, it’s obvious that when you are driving, you would be looking to wear clothes which are comfortable; however, there are still some useful guidelines which most of us tend to forget.
In a hurry, you could potentially drive barefoot; as it’s not considered illegal in some countries, but in case you meet with an accident, your insurance company is going to be handling your claim quite strictly.
Wearing a sensible pair of shoes can save you from a driving error; as when you are driving a luxury car, driving error is mostly the reason behind accidents. Always try to avoid wearing flip-flops, because more often than not they get caught under the accelerator. Any piece of clothing or accessories that restrict your movement while driving should be avoided at all times. Mostly when people are driving to an event or a celebration of some kind, they tend to wear a number of obscure items in clothing. This however should be avoided because driving is more about safety and comfort rather than fashion. While this tip can be overlooked if your destination is within a few miles, people going on long drives should follow this tip very closely.
Wearing sunglasses while you are driving in dark and long sleeves that prevent you from having a firm grip on the steering wheel: They are neither cool, nor fun.
This post isn’t about the safety tips for drivers, but it’s not possible to conclude this post without telling you how important it is to wear your seatbelt. Maybe you ironed your brand new shirt last night, and the seat-belt is only going to make your creases look horrible, but it’s something you should be ready to sacrifice for your safety and for the safety of other passengers in your car.
