Sometimes when you're pulling out into a road you just can't see what is coming. So you inch slowly and pray.
For people who are often in situations like this, there should be a hood ornament that attaches magnetically to the hood. It would be mirrored on 2-3 sides and battery powered so that it
can be controlled wirelessly (battery powered) by the driver. This is so that the mirrors on the ornament can be turned to the proper angles to view either way down the offending street.
I think with a little creative design the functional features could be reasonably masked. Or if it is too ugly, you can just pop it on and off when needed.
wonder how drew is doing?

||That's a better idea, though more expensive. Hope he's alright.
