Driving at night - blind spots
21 replies 831 views
I was driving today and saw cyclist through middle mirror but could not see though left before I turned into my road.
However I knew i outpasted him so drove in.
Surely there’s a safer way to turn into my road, should I check blind spot
If I check blind spot I’m not seeing road head is that not dangerous
How should my mirrors be postion, also the small mirrors you can add on to cover blind spot are the worth it.
Also I find it harder to drive at night, then day, is it worth getting better car lights would that help what elese can help.

have not checked them in long time,other then parking and leaving, and totally forgot, about them during actual driving as armed my mirrors cover everything and not had any accidents.
il gona start checking them now more often
I agree but without getting into long discussions about cyclists it is also important that they take steps to make themselves visible - even then my Grandson who cycles to/from work and is lit up like a Christmas Tree but that did not stop somebody knocking him off his bike.
I always do a shoulder check before overtaking/pulling out (40+ years of riding bikes) and it's saved my bacon in the car a few times.
Decision has to be based on road type, speeds and distance to junction.
This is when I stopped checking blind spots.
as I set my mirrors out simlair a mechanic did it.
but now my mirrors are not that good as that was years ago
