Instead of, or aswell as side view mirrors that project objects that MAY BE CLOSER THEN THEY APPEAR i think there needs to be mirrors that project objects as FURTHER AWAY THEN THEY APPEAR. I feel it might be safe to have objects in the side view mirrors slightly furthur away so you are more prepared
Conventional Side view mirrors,
object(s) appears to be 5 feet away but is actually 3 feet away
My side view mirrors
Object(s) appears to be 3 feet away but is actually 5 feet away
You can look out side windows if you need better and/or more measurements aswell. such as in the case of stall parking
i hope you guys understand what i mean
||Warning etch on Mercedes S class door mirror, passenger's side: "Objects are further than they appear".
||It's probably due to a regulation somewhere...
||It makes a lot of sense and would be safer. I always thought that "closer than they appear" was an unavoidable consequence of making the mirror slightly concave to give a wider view.
||"Objects in mirror are more expensive than they appear"
