Before you head out on the road, take a moment to adjust your mirrors. This will help with safety when driving and also avoid any potential fines from law enforcement. If your vehicle has an inside rearview mirror and outside rearview mirrors, they should be adjusted so that both show the same view of the roadside or horizon behind you. You want to make sure that there is at least one-foot clearance between your eyes and the top part of your car’s windshield in order for these mirrors to work properly.”
Your outside rearview mirrors should be adjusted so you can see the top of your car when looking through them. This will help prevent any accidents, as well.”

this article from Quality Car Parts explains how adjusting both outside and inside rearview mirrors before driving will reduce potential risks on or off the roads. It also provides information about state laws related to safety standards when it comes to having more than two mirrors on one side of a vehicle.
when the inside and outside rearview mirrors are properly adjusted, your car should be visible through them in order to avoid accidents from occurring. This article also points out that the inside mirror is meant to show you what’s behind you while the outside mirror displays information farther down the road.
this blog post discusses how adjusting your rearview mirrors before driving can help reduce potential risks associated with driving or parking near other vehicles as well as providing state laws related to safety standards for cars with more than two mirrors on one side.
The outside (or right) window needs to be clean enough so that you can see the oncoming traffic, and your inside (or left) window needs to be clean in order for you to see what’s coming up behind.”
As a driver, this is important because of how often we have our eyes off the road. This article advises drivers about adjustments they need to make when getting ready for their next drive.”
Some people adjust them before driving; others do it just before parking,” says Associate Professor of Psychology at Ohio State University David Ebright. The adjustment time will differ depending on where the car is parked or driven but should not take longer than five seconds per mirror.
According to state law, all vehicles must have two outside rearview mirrors, one on each side of the vehicle, and one inside rearview mirror on the left side of the car.
The external rearview mirrors are used for seeing what’s coming up behind a vehicle while the inside mirror can be tilted down or back so that it reflects what is on either side of the driver’s door rather than just in front of him/her. The adjustment time will differ depending on where the car is parked or driven but shouldn’t take longer than five seconds per mirror, according to state law and Ebright adds that drivers should adjust their mirrors before they start moving at all times too. Drivers who put themselves in danger by not adjusting their mirrors often have had great results from doing so, he says, citing a driver who was rear-ended when driving distracted.

A driver’s vision is not the same when looking through a rearview mirror as it would be to look out of the front windshield. Rearview mirrors are set at 45-degree angles in order for them to accurately reflect what is behind you. If your inside and outside rearview are adjusted properly, then what you see through these two mirrors should match up with each other; if they don’t line up, adjust as necessary until they do. This will help ensure that lane lines stay straight and objects on either side of the vehicle remain visible without distortion or distraction from any angle.
With that said, some drivers prefer their interior “blind spot” mirror positioned more toward the center console so it can give an unobstructed view of what is directly behind the car while still being able to see out of the front windshield.
