DOT Head Don Dent: "We've already contracted with the estate of Paul Evans, whose 1959 hit 'Seven Little Girls (Sitting in the Back Seat)' contains the immortal chorus: 'Keep your mind on your driving/Keep your hands on the wheel/Keep your snoopy eyes on the road ahead.' We're not gonna change a thing."
