As soon as you get into your car, and even before you crank that engine and start driving on metroplex highways, do you know what you should do? It’s a very simple task that can certainly help you prevent getting into an accident. You should adjust your mirrors! Yup! A simple adjustment to your mirrors might mean the difference of seeing your blind spot and not! Further, you’d be surprised at how many people DON’T adjust their mirrors the right way.
It’s quite simple really. There are two easy adjustments that can be made to your mirrors. First, you should focus on eliminating your blind spots. After all, it’s what you can’t see that you end up hitting. Here’s a video from Auto Focus on how to do this:
Don’t think that you can just set and forget your mirrors just once either. You should set them every time you get in your car. I’m serious. You might think it’s overkill, but you may sit in a different position each time, or share a vehicle with a family member. If that’s the case, you’ll need to adjust them each time. I’m sure you know many accidents are caused because one driver didn’t see the other. So why not take a few extra seconds to set your mirrors properly.
