I wonder how many of those blind spot accidents are due to people setting all 3 mirrors to cover essentially the same place - the back of the car.

If you set your mirrors wider, the blind spot almost completely disappears. Though it will probably be a bit disconcerting at first. If you want to look behind you, you'll have to actually look at the rear view mirror instead of the side mirrors.

OK, let's say you make a car that has some sort of device that limits the amount of air that goes into the engine. Let's call this, for lack of a better term, an 'air restrictor'. Then the evil gasoline manufacturers sue the air restrictor maker for limiting the amount of gas that is consumed. The aristocrats.
