THIS MONTHS TIP FOR OCTOBER!
A driver can follow a simple method for eliminating blind spots:
- Adjust the rear-view mirror to give a direct rear view.
- Lean to the left, towards the driver's side window. From this position, adjust the mirror to just barely show the side of the car.
- Lean to the right, centering your head inside the vehicle. From this position, adjust the right mirror such that you can again just barely see the side of the car.
- Verify visibility when in comfortable driving position. Also verify the vertical alignment of your mirrors; you want to watch down the road, not at the street or sky.
