I drive barefooted quite a bit and when I have shoes on I often slip them off and drive with socks on. I hate wearing shoes and only do so for work, walking and yard work. If you come over to my house I am always bare footed or have only socks on my feet. First thing I do when I get home is kick off my shoes.

I sleep naked also...In case anyone is interested.:D

In the state of ohio, you cannot... probably related to getting something pinched in the pedals.
 

I used to take short trips (post office, ATM, etc.) barefoot. However, I stopped doing that after I had to go into the bank barefoot when the ATM gave me $20 less than I typed in. :(

I did it once just moving a car out of a driveway to let someone out. I didn't like the feel of the pedals under my bare foot. Didn't feel like I could push them down as hard or as quickly as when wearing shoes.

I walk around barefoot alot, and took a drive today to run a quick errand barefoot.... didnt know the legality of it.
Sandals... like the outdoors kind... that's a quick slip-on... did you walk to your car outside (or in the garage) barefoot too ?

I sure hope it's legal.

Legal?...maybe....Painful?....I would have thought so....especially without power steering...imagine trying to parallel park.
