Thank you for your report. The county do not provide or support the use of road mirrors on the highway. The image they provide can be misleading in terms of vehicle speed and distance giving drivers a false sense of security, potentially leading to vehicles emerging injudiciously. They are also prone to vandalism, fogging in poor atmospheric conditions and glare from the sun or car headlights.
I'm sorry that we cannot be of any further assistance in the use of mirrors.
