5 Point Safety Check for Motor Vehicle Mirrors: How to Keep Your Eyes on the Road

It’s important to keep your eyes on the road while driving, and that means ensuring your motor vehicle mirrors are in good condition. A five-point safety check can help you do just that! In this blog post, we will go over each point and show you how to properly inspect your car mirror for damage or defects. Keep yourself and your passengers safe by following these simple tips.

Number one on the list is to check for cracks or breaks in the mirror glass. If you see any, it’s time to replace the mirror. Cracks can distort your view of the road behind you, which can lead to accidents.

Next, make sure the surface of the mirror is clean and free of any debris. A dirty mirror will reduce your visibility and could cause you to miss something important while driving.

Third, check the frame of the mirror for any damage. If the frame is bent or broken, it could cause the mirror to come loose while you’re driving. This is a serious safety hazard, so be sure to replace the mirror if you see any damage to the frame.

Fourth, make sure the mirror is securely attached to the vehicle. If it’s not, it could fall off while you’re driving and cause an accident.

Finally, check the adjustment of the mirror. Make sure it’s positioned correctly so you have a clear view of the road behind you. These are just a few simple tips to help you keep your eyes on the road and stay safe while driving.
