Mirror

Can you tell I'm running out of things to post?

The topmost of the three passenger side rearview mirrors required by law on Japanese large trucks (smaller trucks are required to have two).

The aggravating thing about mirrors on Japanese trucks is that the law specifies they all be convex (curved) mirrors. Not only do they make things look farther away, they also warp straight lines....both of which make backing up using just the mirrors very uncommon, unlike in the US, where flat mirrors are the norm.
