What I discovered was that cars disappeared from my rearview mirror and almost immediately the nose appeared in the side mirror. Long vehicles were visible in the side mirror while still visible in the rearview mirror.

It was obvious after this practice, that even in a car with shitty visibility, between the rearview mirror, the side mirror and a slight turn of the head it is possible to see everything in the lanes beside you. It has made driving much more relaxing.
I'm pretty sure that was me!
