The Real Blind Spot Mirrors

When you are next driving along our nations wide stretches of highways, take a look at the vehicle next to you. Can you see if that vehicle has a blind spot mirror attached to their side mirrors, or perhaps do they have a special manufactured blind spot mirror? One way you can tell is if the side mirror has a warning across it stating that objects may be closer than they appear. Perhaps it is your vehicle that has these blind spot mirrors attached?

This is something that most of us can relate to, isn’t it? How many times have you been driving along and had someone change lanes almost wiping you out – or worse, they have wiped you out? This is such a common cause of collisions and yet the remedy for the blind spot has been insufficient thus far. The manufacturers started delivering vehicles with side mirrors that reduced the images of the objects they reflected. Whilst it may have been successful in reflecting the other vehicles in the blind spot, they did little for the driver who had to not only squint to actually make out what that vehicle was, they then had to accurately estimate how far away it was in order to make a safe lane change. Needless to say, many of the vehicles involved in lane changes had these mirrors installed.

MaxiView blind spot mirrors are the worlds most adjustable stick on mirror. These blind spot mirrors are attached to the upper corner of the side mirror where the sky would normally be reflected, thus not reducing or impairing visibility at all for the driver. MaxiView blind spot mirrors are able to enhance the image that is reflected by three times their actual size, this means that drivers have more than enough time to choose to switch lanes and can easily make out what the object is in the reflection.
