I’m don’t use this blog much for safety tips. Not because they are not important but because you can get that information elsewhere. But with Labor Day weekend coming upon us, I have to drive to the Eastern Shore so I’d like to be safe. And I get to feel unbelievably superior when I write these things. So let’s talk about using car mirrors properly, because it seems like few people know how to use them and fewer understand their limitation. Please read this in a condescending, know-it-all tone.
Mirrors are one of the most vital parts on an automobile. Too many drivers on Maryland roads today, view mirrors as important as getting a NFL Red Zone is to the “Kinky Boots” musical cast playing at the Hippodrome later this month. They are jerking their heads around, like a madman before every aggressive, unsafe lane change they make.
