Ignore all that stuff, and you're relying on luck for your safety.
Dude, sorry, but where I ride the cars are packed and mirrors are useless.

This is an example.


Maybe it's different for you but a mirror is nothing but an unwanted distraction for me.

This is old video and traffic is much worse now.
