Vehicle mirrors are safety features, and drivers only have three, so when one becomes broken, it leaves a major blind spot. When these are the external side mirrors, it can be hard work driving a vehicle without almost causing a collision.
Such is the importance of side mirrors, if you are caught driving without one in downtown Las Vegas, there is a good chance you might land yourself a ticket.
An external side mirror used to be a straightforward thing to change, but those days are gone. Most are now electric and come with all manner of swivel balls inside so drivers can find the best angle while driving. If they are hit by another vehicle or caught on a stationary object, in most cases, the end result is they are broken.
