We have a local humpback bridge near us that was made in 1880 and will only just take two modern cars side by side. I do not know how many cars have lost mirrors when passing each other there, as its a total blindspot for oncoming traffic

When i go over it I pull in my mirror just to give me those few extra inches, and always try to judge going over the bridge by myself.

If I see a lorry oncomming, forget it as I come to a stop til its over the bridge.

We have campained for traffic lights there to end two way flow collisions, but council refuses to pay for them.
