Idea for the safety of our beautiful mustangs

I have an idea the seems pretty useful for truck drivers. We all know semi's have 2 side mirrors: one for traffic, the other for the trailer. Yet, a lot of truck drivers will still try to change lanes that is occupied by a small car. So why not have a 3rd mirror angled downward so they can see them? It seems very reliable and useful. What do you guys think?

I hate it when semis try to change lanes and you are right next to them... Some people just don't think

Exactly and I think it would be great if they had a mirror for checking for small, low cats beside them.

Re: Idea for the safety of our beautiful mustangs

It's people in the cars that cause accidents more than tractor trailer drivers. People whipping in front of a fully loaded rig and slamming on their brakes don't realize how hard it is to stop a fully loaded truck. People on the road should be extra careful around trucks anyways because of blind spots and whatnot. The smart thing to do is keep your distance in front,behind or on the sides of them. Remember if you can't see them (in their mirror) they can't see you. If there is a rig riding your ***.......just move out of the way or speed up,it's not worth getting butt rammed.

Some have fender mirrors but they look Perty wack on most trucks. Blind spots my friends truckers can fit a whole car with no problem in them blind spots, best thing to do it push it a little to pass em quick
