According to a new survey, wearing FLIP FLOPS is one of the most dangerous things you can do behind the wheel of a car.

More than half of people admit it's a struggle to drive in them, and 11% have gotten a flip flop got STUCK under one of the pedals.

But 33% of people STILL drive in flip flops...even though it takes about a tenth of a second longer to hit the brakes, on average.  And moving your foot between the pedals takes twice as long in flip flops compared to high heels.

According to the Daily Mail, here are the 5 MOST DANGEROUS TYPES OF FOOTWEAR TO DRIVE IN:  

1.  51% of drivers said they're hard to drive in.

2.  Bare feet, 49%

3.  Heels, 38%

4.  Flats, 25%

5.  Sandals OTHER than flip flops, 18%
