Concave or Convex Mirror?

Automobile side view mirrors are not identical. The driver side mirror is concave and the passenger side mirror is convex. The latter has this shape because the blind side is bigger. Its convex shape gives the driver a greater field of view. But given that the convex mirror distorts distance, there is often a note in the passenger mirror: « Objects in the mirror are closer than they seem. »
