I suggest you finish this one while you have worked all of your cases. In some points of the game you do the actual driving already so those already count for the total.
In the White Shoe Slaying you have to drive all of the time because one key clue is a taxi, which is announced over the radio seen driving around. It's a clue you can miss when letting Rusty drive the car and skip the travel.
Skipping the travel can cause you to repeat the entire case all over as getting and interviewing the cab driver gets you the 5 star case rating!
You also follow a route for a bus to interview the driver.

When you finished the game there are several big distances you can drive with your car while looking for:

*All of the not discovered monuments
*All of the cars you did not found yet (which can be sometimes a total pain since not all cars pop up all the time at their locations or areas)
*All of the crime cases (a total of 40, for which you sometimes have to travel fair amounts of mileage (in Vice, there are several crime cases where you travel half the city!)
In most crime cases you also have to follow the criminals by car, which lets you drive. Again: In this missions no damage is counted in any way possible!
*All of the movie reels
*All of the novels
*All of the gold records
*All of the shields

When you drive to all locations yourself you will easily get the distance needed to travel.
(Which is a reference to the year it takes place in, 1947)

The logical reason why your partner should drive all the time is the fact you are assured you finish a case with 5 star rating.
(In the final stretch of the Nicholson Plating case you don't really have to worry about damaging anything, as the final part does not seem to count for damaging any car or hitting any mailbox. I hit several cars and the army cars but no damage was counted. And again: Here you drive the car no matter what escaping the fire and go in pursuit of Mapes )
