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.
There's something abnormal if that's the conclusion you came to. Mirrors aren't just useful they're required for motor vehicles by law. Unless you know something the rest of the world does not.

You should have just returned them if they didn't work right bub. That's what I did.

Can you really see in a handlebar mounted mirror or do they vibrate so much that the mirror just has a blur?

No. At least I couldn't that's why I got rid of mine and switch to an eyeglass mount. I tried the helmet mount too (it was larger mirror) but it turned out to be too gangly.
