Mirrors on the Highway

DCC will not allow the use of mirrors on the public highway because experience shows that mirrors can increase safety risks , which include;

  • reflect light and interfere with a driver’s vision
  • reduce the ability to judge an oncoming vehicle’s speed
  • create an unreasonable dependence on the mirror
  • if dirty, distort or restrict the view
  • be an easy target for vandals

If visibility is an issue, there may be other solutions available e.g. cutting back vegetation or realigning boundary fences.
