Check out the side mirrors of the vehicles that you encounter when driving next. Some of them may be fitted with the bubble or fish eye type blind spot mirrors that have been on the market for some time now. Others may have the manufacturers installed blind spot mirrors that reduce the images size by around eight times. These mirrors usually always come with the warning that objects may appear smaller than they are. These are the mirrors that have been on the market trying to combat an issue that all vehicles regardless of size and model has; the blind spot.
The problem with these side mirrors is that they provide more problems than they solve. When an image is reduced in size in the reflection the driver must estimate accurately the distance between their vehicle and the oncoming vehicle. This can be fraught with danger, as it depends on an accurate estimation. This just did not make sense to many drivers and it is interesting to note that many vehicles that are involved in lane change collisions have these mirrors installed. This implies their lack of effectiveness, and the drivers lack of ability to accurately estimate.
MaxiView blind spot mirrors have taken a far more logical approach to the blind spot. Instead of reducing the images size that is reflected, MaxiView enlarges it by up to three times. This means that the driver has ample time to ascertain the safety of the lane change and does not need to squint to see the image reflected. As the most adjustable stick on blind spot mirror in the world, MaxiView mirrors are attached to the upper corner of the existing side mirrors in the place that would normally reflect the sky. This improves the drivers vision rather than impairing it, and at less than $30 a pair the MaxiView blind spot mirrors represent a very economical investment in safety.
