Look in the Mirror | Mirrors, Glass Repair

If your car mirror is broken, you should get it fixed as soon as possible for safety's sake.

You've decided to take a road trip to the Black Chasm Cavern this weekend. The zipline and the labyrinth tour both sound intriguing. But, before you head out, be sure to check your car to make sure it's ready for the road. That includes the rear view and side mirrors.

AAA has suggestions for adjusting your mirrors for the maximum safety when driving:

Rear view (inside) mirror:

  • "Adjust the inside mirror so you can see the entire rear window from the driver's seat. You should have to move only your eyes, not your head, when using this mirror.
  • "Drivers 6 feet tall or taller may find it helpful to reposition the mirror upside down, if possible. This usually raises the bottom edge of the mirror about 1 to 2 inches and can substantially rescue a major blind area to the front for tall drivers."

Side mirrors:

  • "To adjust the driver's side-view mirror, place your head against the left side window and set the mirror so you can just barely see the side of the car in the mirror's right side.
  • "To adjust the passenger's side-view mirror, position your head so that it is just above the center console. Set the mirror so you can just barely see the side of the car in the left side of the mirror. If the vehicle is not equipped with remote mirror-adjustment controls, you may need assistance when properly positioning this mirror."

"With these settings, you will have almost seamless visual contact around your vehicle, which can help you detect the presence of nearby drivers," AAA says.
