For over 50 years, auto manufacturers have included on some or all vehicles vanity mirrors located on the sun visors. The variations include one on each visor, one on the passenger visor, one on the driver's visor or none at all (obviously, this question wouldn't apply here unless you bought an after market mirror). Some of these mirrors had lights and some had lights with two intensities. If you have them, do you use them?

I use them occasionally. My truck only has one on the passenger side, unlit.

Hi Dan. My GF uses them all the time. I use them when she tells me my glasses are dirty (I never believe her, and I can't see well enough without them to tell unless I have a mirror). Oh, I also use the mirror from the passenger seat when I am parked and waiting for her. She always seems to come up from behind me...

Equal rights made a massive stride forward when manufacturers put vanity mirrors on BOTH sunvisors, and not just the passenger's (women's) side.

We are truly advancing as a society, and will achieve perfection in the next generation.
