How to adjust car mirrors?
One difficulty with side-view mirrors is the blind spot. Experts suggest getting rid of most of that blind spot (at least enough that a whole car can’t hide in one) by using BGE – Blind zone/Glare Elimination. With the driver’s side window up, lean on it and press the side of your head against the window as you adjust the driver’s side mirror so that you can just see the edge of your car on the right side of the mirror, and down enough to see the road. Then lean in toward the center of the car to place your head just behind the rear-view mirror and adjust the passenger side mirror the same way. Using mirrors and peripheral vision to check our blind spots can prevent having to lose valuable seconds by turning our heads for a quick check, and gets rid of most of the blind spot. Whatever’s left isn’t big enough for a full-sized vehicle to hide in.
