Mirrors reflect what's happening way ahead

How impossible does this sound? A driver is in a convoy, on a two-lane highway, the 10th driver behind a long line of 18-wheelers. Traffic slows down — and he can see what is causing the problem, just the same as the first driver.

The Forward View Mirror makes this possible. Designed for professional drivers who want to increase road safety, and reduce driving stress caused by a limited field of view while driving behind other trucks.

The FVM has two mirrors that face each other with the forward-looking one pointed at an angle up the road. Traffic problems developing ahead can be seen without the driver having to veer in and out of the driving lane. He can see around the truck in front and four to six trailer lengths up the road ahead.

The FVM is suitable for any truck of more than five tons. For complete details, contact Blair Enterprises of Florida, 10237 Blossom Lake Dr, Seminole FL 33772.
