The driver of a motor vehicle that was involved in a collision may sometimes be identified by marks on shoe soles or pedals. Forceful contact of an automotive pedal with a shoe sole may leave characteristic features on either or both. An optical method was developed to compare these features that are illustrated with 15 photographs. Four cases are discussed in detail and conclusions are given.
