Yes, especially when at a red light, you never know if the driver in a vehicle coming behind you is paying attention to the traffic light.

I spend almost as much time checking what is behind or coming up behind me as I do checking where I'm going

Yes, using all the mirrors is essential for being a safe agile Driver. I never start movement in any of our vehicles until I can visibly see clearly in every mirror.

Agree with 2004VHO and hoopitup2000 just to name a few; always scanning and looking for an "out".
