  • Mirror Less Cars being approved by Japan

Japanese Citizens will be able to drive mirror less cars from now.

There were several petitions against the mirrors being used in the cars and the need to take them off. Mirrors pay a vital role in making the driver see all around the vehicle when driving.

However they are also known to scratch other cars, be stolen or be broken in little incidents pretty easily. This is the reason they can become a problem at times too. However with new technology, self-driving features and camera installation in cars, it has become possible to drive a mirror less car.

Thus this petition was approved by Japanese government, according to AutoNews. Now Japanese citizens will be able to drive cooler stylish, safer and better looking cars on the roads.

The mirrors are also a very important thing that can cost more fuel consumption due to friction. Many cars have been successfully introduced which are mirrorless.

The new technology of high-tech cameras have made the job much easier for the drivers to have a 3D vision of outside while sitting in the car without mirrors. They are safer and pretty much better at showing the surroundings too.

However the official rule in many countries doesn’t allow a mirror less car to be driven on roads. The World Forum of Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations is doing its best to make sure that the rule for mirrorless cars is being approved.

Many companies have started following this trend too. The new 2016 Cadillac CT6 has a rear view mirror that changes into a video display on demand.

Video displays and cameras provide many better options for safety as they provide a much better view than mirrors. These can make sure that no blind spot is left behind which is not the case with mirrors.
