This may give flat packing a new meaning for travelers to Switzerland.

The Alpine nation may soon ban drivers from wearing high heels and other types of shoes behind the wheel, The Sunday Times reports.

Police have been lobbying for the restrictions after a number of high-profile accidents tied to inappropriate footwear, including ski boots.

Drivers caught violating the new law could face a suspension of their license and up to three months in prison.

The specific kinds of footwear that will be affected have not yet been determined, but don’t think you’ll be able to just kick off your heels if you see a police car in your rearview mirror.

Barefoot driving is expected to be banned there as well.
