#1188: RoadScope

Today’s invention is a way for drivers of left-hand-drive-vehicles to overtake more safely.

A periscope is mounted across the top of the dashboard with a motor driven mirror unit protruding through the window (extendable when overtaking is anticipated.

This allows the driver to rotate the mirror unit and see what’s behind and in front using only small lateral movements of the vehicle.

The unit might obviously be reused to help drivers of right-hand-drive cars in lhd countries.
