Yes, but that doesn't darken your mirror, it just tilts the mirror so that the light isn't shining in your eyes.

I thought it was an issue with my vision. My main issue is only oncoming traffic. I brake and pray that I don't hit anyone.

We need a lawyer to weigh in because there are legit liability issues here.

If someone drives with their brights (high beam lights) and blinds you and causes you to crash, they are liable.

Yes it tilts the mirror but the mirror is sort of like a bifocal thing that has two types of mirrors in one depending on the angle you're looking at it from.

It does the job perfectly. You can see all the lights behind you but not as a glare, more as a dull light. Extremely beneficial

True. That's what I meant originally, though
