Setting your mirrors correctlyJanuary 9, 2011 | in Helping You Drive Safely
For years, we’d been setting our side-view mirrors so that they gave us a view of the back corner of our cars. This is the way it’s been done for generations – from grandfather, to father, to us! But we finally discovered something very interesting. The back corner of the car never moves. It always stays in the same exact place. So there’s really no reason to keep an eye on it.
By moving the side mirrors farther out, you can line up all three of your mirrors so they have minimal overlap — and you can see everything behind you and beside you.
DefensiveDriving.com teaches many valuable driving skills. Here is one that I have found very beneficial as I can actually alleviate blind spots and reduce my risk of a collision. Catenya McHenry is correct in this video – you must give yourself some time to get used to the new view when setting your mirrors correctly. Once you’ve become acclimated to the change, you will be a much safer driver!
