Commuting was fun, until they invented cell phones. Now I need to know what is going on behind me. It as if 1/10th of the drivers are drunk as being on a cell phone has the same effect.
I ride in constant traffic. Either passing or getting passed constantly. A mirror would simply be a distraction but maybe you're conditions are different.

If I have parked cars on both sides of the street and two way traffic in addition, I don't have anytime for a rearward mirror.
