I tried driving in heels sometimes, but for trips that required a lot of start/stop or gear shifting, I kicked off the heels and wore sneakers while in the car. It’s safer. Your heel can get caught (especially when not used to them) on the floor mat and cause a wreck. And then you WILL be a damsel in distress! But not in a good princess being rescued kind of way and more in a “how do I explain this to the insurance company” kind of way.
Although I do think the insurance rates for women are a bit lower at least for some ages… 😂
