Stump the Law Librarian

Q: With the summer season coming up, I'm heading to the beach! Sometimes when unloading my boat and parking my car, I've driven my car without shoes. My buddy says that I'm breaking the law when I do that. Is it legal to drive barefoot in Wisconsin?

A: You don't have to ruin your summer vacation worrying about getting busted for driving without footwear. According to the State Patrol, it's OK to drive without shoes. Under the Miscellaneous FAQ section, it states: Is it legal to drive without shoes? Their answer: Yes. [You might also like to know that if you end up falling out of your boat and breaking your arm or leg, you can also legally drive with a cast on!]
