They have existed in the past. They've been uniformly discontinued because they cost a dollar or two more than the one without, and I think there are two sources of revenue for helmet makers - the mass market that won't pay an extra 10 cents for a safety feature, and racers who spend $200 on $30 pieces of styrofoam but demand racing styling, which does not include mirrors.
