Wrong Mirrors

Ever since I started driving I've had my car mirrors wrong. I would adjust the side mirrors so I could see the side of the car. But according to this, that's wrong. The mirrors should show you the blind spots. Makes sense.

So I made this change a month ago because my Pontiac Vibe has big blind spots and I've almost sideswiped other cars a few times. The blind spots are clearly visible now, so that's good. But without being able to see the side of the car in the mirror it's hard to judge distance. In total I think it's a good change. If you drive a vehicle with bad spots, give it a try.

I've been adjusting my mirrors as described (the right way) for years. You get used to it and will be able to judge distance as before in no time.
