Thanks for asking! Most states do not stipulate that you cannot wear a helmet while driving. That said, you should not wear anything that impedes your vision while behind the wheel of a car.
Some items you should not wear while driving include:
  • Flip-flops
  • Slippers
  • Mules
  • High heels
  • Headphones that cover both ears
Safety first at all times is the way to drive. Once you’ve mastered safe driving, you should shop for the best
