Construction of a new Stoney Trail bridge over the Bow River at Bowness Park in Calgary.
Snapped this scene through the window of a bus back in December, while I was making may way from Phoenix to Las Vegas.
(On a technical note: I wonder if the speed of our vehicle created some kind of rolling shutter artifact in this picture, as I’m not certain the sign in the foreground was quite so slanted in real life.)
A friendly Sun reader, reacting to a recent column about questionable highway driving, provided this link from an insurance company.
The site explains how to optimally position your rear-view and side mirror such that blind spots are eliminated. The author states emphatically “I don’t believe in ‘blind spots.'”
I gave his instructions a try. It turns out my mirrors were already positioned as described — and the blind spot is still there, although it’s very, very slight.
If you drive, why don’t you give it a try. It might improve the field of view of your car mirrors.
