HAVE YOU EVER BEEN DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD--BUT THEN START LOOKING IN THE MIRROR, TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE'S NO FOOD IN YOUR TEETH?  THAT CAN BE A DISTRACTION--SINCE YOUR EYES ARE OFF THE ROAD, WHICH CAN CONTRIBUTE TO A CRASH.  THE "DRIVING-SCHOOL ASSOCIATION OF THE AMERICAS" REMINDS DRIVERS THAT MIRRORS ARE IN THE CAR FOR ONE PURPOSE: TO EXPAND THE DRIVER'S VIEW OF TRAFFIC, PEDESTRIANS, AND WHAT'S HAPPENING ON THE ROADWAY.  BUT, MOST DRIVERS--MEN AND WOMEN, OF ALL AGES--CAN'T RESIST THE URGE TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY LOOK GOOD--EVEN WHEN THEY'RE BEHIND THE WHEEL.  FOR MOST, IT'S JUST A HABIT--BUT A BAD HABIT THAT THEY NEED TO BREAK.  EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY, THERE ARE A HALF-MILLION PEOPLE DRIVING DISTRACTED--PUTTING THEMSELVES, THEIR PASSENGERS, AND ANYONE AROUND THEM AT RISK.  USE COMMON-SENSE:  KEEP A STEADY EYE ON YOUR REARVIEW- OR SIDE-MIRRORS--BUT ONLY CHECK YOUR LOOKS WHEN STOPPED.  LEARN MORE ABOUT PREVENTING DISTRACTED-DRIVING, AT "FACEBOOK"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"AUTO-ALLIANCE".
