I don't prefer to hang anything on the IRVM or stick anything on the dash board. I like a clean dash and front windshield view always, except a ambipur sticked to A/C ventilator. Still I keep a palm size photo of lord murugha on the odo meter panel, just placed. Take the photo in hand and pray for a minute and keep it back before I start the car every morning.

nothing as it blocks my field of vision and I find it distracting.

I dont know if something hanging from my IRVM would block/distract/irritate me while I drive because I never had one and why I never had one? Because I never thought I could hang something from the IRVM, let me check it out though

Used to hang a skull with red eyes.
Didn't go down well with my passengers.

I used to have couple of items. Last one was one boxing glove (the one we get as key ring). Now don't have any.

Unlike many of us have mentioned here, any small things neither block vision nor distracting. For distraction many other items can be rated above this, it can be music system, co-passenger, even GPS etc.

Though I hate to hang things on the IRVM, I used to hang my favorite 'hanging toy' in the IRVM when I was a kid

Currently, we don't have anything hanging on the IRVM as me and my father hates it!

Why would you let something distract you while driving. Having said that - a friend hangs a SILVER Marijuana leaf on the RVM. I find it weird, but then it is his car not mine


LOL

I don't like anything hanging onto the IRVM. I also hate keeping anything on the dashboard. This is more from a safety perspective as it can break (not applicable for soft toys) and hit you in the face in case of a crash.

OT, I saw a car's dashboard lined up with all kinds of small toys in the front, close to the windshield. It looked almost like a mini toy store. I am sure that kids would love this car.

I always felt that anything hanging in my line of sight would be irritating. Then my wife bought these two dolls. She asked if we could hang them on the rear view mirror.

I said ok and let them on a trial basis.
After a day or two, did not find them distracting. Instead I find it amusing the way they tumble and dance on the lovely (broken) roads I use.

Here is a picture of Raju and Bella.

I like it plain, but family insists on hanging a rosary - I have one.
