Rear view mirrors are an essential addition when driving any motor vehicle and in spite of their use in all cars, there is no typical way of regulating them.

How To Adjust Car Mirrors To Avoid Blind-spots

Rear view mirrors are an indispensable accessory when driving any motor vehicle and despite their use in all cars, there is no standard way of adjusting them. Most drivers adjust the rear-view mirror to encompass the rear window of the car and this is generally an acceptable way of doing so. Some drivers though will bias the side-to-side angle of the rear-view mirror so that a very small portion of the rear windshield trim is visible. In the case of left-hand drive cars, this would mean that the rear-view mirror would be angled slightly to the right. The majority or drivers will adjust their side-view mirrors with what we will call the narrow-angle view. This means that a fourth of the usable area of the mirror will show the side of the car being driven. This is done for the left and right side-view mirrors.

There is a school of thought though that promotes the wide-angle view. The theory is that this setting will eliminate the blind spots in your view to the rear. A car coming from the rear will first be seen in the rear-view mirror and as it moves past your vehicle, that particular car will instantly show up in either the left or right side-view mirror. Although it may seem like a new method, this teaching has been around since the late 60s but has not really caught on because it is disconcerting for the first few times that you try it out. Here are the steps to set your mirrors to a wide-angle view.
