    Are you sure about that? https://ecomodder.com/wiki/Mirror_Laws_by_State_(U.S.)

    Thank goodness I live in the Freedom-Loving North, where we avoid the tyranny of the Side Mirror Industrial Complex!

    (gentle sarcasm?)



    Check the Ontario Hightway Traffic Act, 66 (1)(b).

    For clarification:

    1) The view through the rear view mirror wasn't totally blocked. I could make out a car behind me through the forest, more or less.

    2) I intentionally took the pic from that angle to make the trailer + load look gigantic compared to the car.

    3) There was an assumption that I have NO side mirrors - but I've got wide-angle mirrors on both doors, inside the glass by the base of the A pillars. I should get a pic to show this.

    The only thing I sometimes miss is being able to see the side of the car in those rare times I'm reversing in an extremely tight spot. An inside-mounted mirror obviously can't show this. So I stick my head out the window (driver's side) and/or employ fervent prayer (passenger side).
    No nagging from me my friend, I was just admiring your bravery/huge ballz. Post the mirror set up would you?

    Kinda gross how cavalier an attitude you have toward safety.

    For what, saving a smidgen on gas? I'd rather arrive safe. Like masks, it's about protecting others.

    This is like the 4 x 4 monster truck attitude, shrunken.

    Hey dspace9 I get where you are coming from - I don't disagree with you. Sorry if I set you off.

    I also remember when cars didn't have passenger side view mirrors. You might find it curious to know that my first Mitusbishi was like this - a 1976 Dodge Colt Estate wagon, also a five speed. I spoke about it briefly in my introductory post years ago:

    In 1983, I pieced together a 1976 Dodge Colt station wagon. The previous owner neglected the oil changes, and sold it to me with a seized engine. The body was a bit rough, but usable. It was blue with woodgrain.

    For a parts car I bought a Plymouth Arrow whose strut towers had rusted out. The Arrow cost more than the Colt. I pulled the 2000cc engine out of the Colt and put in the 1600cc engine from the Arrow, and I had my first car. Fun times and freedom. I put a lot of interstate miles on it before I sold it out of fear that it's strut towers were about to rust out.
    Getting a passenger side view mirror was a luxury!

    Maybe you didn't pick up on my bit of irony and humor? If so, I apologize.

    Thanks Eggman. I get that passenger mirror's used to be a luxury item. Our Datsun 210 was like that.

    But blocking rear-view mirrors, with ginormous spoilers, and removing the driver's side mirror, is just such a stupid idea. Regardless of legality. It's more loophole than legal.

    I know Safety First isn't going to get me into the popularity club (back of the line already _ but I think people ought to just imbibe to their hearts content in their own home and yard. When you're on the road, follow the rules!

    Drive heavy equipment for 10 years and see what your attitude is then.
