Don't look, just drive. Christina Aguilera's chauffeur doesn't like what he sees in the rear view Mirror. [Santa Monica, March 26. Image via Pacific Coast News Online].
Rearview mirrors are a necessity for changing lanes. Whether changing lanes to the left or right, you must use the mirror AND a quick glance over your shoulder before executing your lane change. In high-speed lane changes, things in front of you can shift rapidly.
While looking in the mirror, cars in front of you on a busy highway can suddenly slam on the brakes leaving you unaware of what is in front of you while looking behind you. Never stay focused on the mirror for too long while moving forward. Be mindful of distracting passengers and carrying on conversations via rear-view mirror eye contact.
