3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Get Behind the Wheel with a Broken Side Mirror
Mirrors, both on the inside and the outside of the car are vital for personal safety. They help us with various tasks while driving, such as changing lanes or making a turn. Any problem with your car’s side- or rearview mirrors can put you, the passengers and everyone else on the road at risk. If you recently got into a minor accident that left you with a shattered side mirror, here are three key reasons why you should get it repaired.
They Offer a Broader View
Side mirrors don’t just help you change lanes but they also enhance visibility and the driver’s view. They minimize blind spots and ensure that’s the driver’s view is clear and help view other cars on the road.
They Help You Park Properly
When you’re parking backwards and with other cars already parked on both sides, you need help from the side mirrors. Without a side mirror, you’ll barely be able to see the space between your vehicle and the one that’s already parked. This will most likely lead to scratches and dents on your vehicle as well as others’. So, unless you’re ready to feel the wrath of multiple drivers, it’s best to get your broken mirror fixed.
You Need Them For Changing Lanes
You need mirrors for changing lanes or making a turn without getting t-boned. If you’re unable to see an oncoming vehicle for the side, there’s a high chance you’ll get into an accident. The biggest reasons for sideswipe accidents are blind spots and the absence of a side mirror is responsible for it. If you cause an accident while merging into moving traffic, you’ll be held responsible for the accident. This means that the damage won’t likely be covered by insurance and you’ll have to pay for repairs and replacements out of pocket.
