Default Side Mirrors

hey guys, i have been observing for a long time that most of the car owners either dont have side mirrors or even if they do have, they dont use them resulting in error in judgement while changing lanes or turning. the rear view mirror only gives a small view of the rear which cant always be helpful.

IMHO a good driver will always need the side mirrors. just as many other driving aids are there to help the driver. again some of the cars available in the market originally come with only the driver's side mirror & not the opposite. dont u think for a car its incomplete setup & there should be a legislation not only for having both side view mirrors but on their use also. while the car is in motion they have to be open else a challan.

please enlighten us with your views on this plus the many more advantages that the side view mirrors offer.
