Every car has a rearview mirror inside the car that reflects the view out of the rear window of the road behind. Mirrors are critical in determining when it’s safe to make a lane change, and they’re invaluable in providing information about what is in your car’s immediate vicinity. Many people only use their mirror for backing up their car, even though it is strongly advised to turn around and look over your shoulder to visually see where you are going. However, mirrors do more than that. They allow you to check for pedestrians or bicycles when you are about to open the car door.
Replace any mirror that has been damaged immediately. It’s not only illegal to drive without a mirror, it’s potentially dangerous because of the blind spot it creates. A broken mirror also deprives a driver of critical strategic information needed for maneuvers out on the road.
The replacement of a broken or badly obscured rearview mirror is a high-priority repair. As a legal requirement and a critical safety issue, the mirror should be replaced immediately.
