AAA Texas wants to remind all drivers that hanging items from your rearview mirror, including protective masks, is a safety hazard. With the current requirement to wear masks in public across Texas, many people keep masks in their vehicles.

Some motorists have found that hanging them from the rearview mirror is a convenient way to keep them handy. However, a mask or any other object hanging from a mirror can partially block your field of vision, increasing the risk of a crash.
