Road mirrors

Road mirrors on or next to the public highway are not normally recommended as they can be:

  • misleading at night when reflecting headlights
  • damaged by vandals or by accident
  • affected by glare from sunlight
  • sometimes obscured by condensation and dirt
  • confusing for non-local motorists
  • misleading due to difficulties of judging speed and distance

Road mirrors are only placed in rural areas and never in built-up areas. Contact us for further details.

Other road mirrors

Small mirrors on traffic lights (Trixi mirrors) are installed by Transport for Greater Manchester to help improve cyclist safety at junctions.
