Gather round boys and girls, it’s bobsled time.

I know conventional wisdom says you should adjust your side mirrors to look behind you. But then I ran across this article years ago and tried it, and now I can’t believe I ever did anything else.

When you think about it seems odd your side mirrors would be there to do the exact same thing your rear view mirror does. But when you angle them out you can eliminate 90% of blind spots on most cars if it’s done right.

And since I started doing this I get mad when I get into new cars that have the convex mirror built in. All it does is screw things up for me.
