Apart from flying flags on Yon Ha’atzmaut, for the past couple of years a new fad has arisen here; mirror covers.

It’s a nifty little thing that doesn’t annoy you like flapping plastic flags, which also prevents you from rolling down your window.

Then there’s this guy:


The road to hell is full of good intentions, but this is just knocking on the devil’s door. Then again, a good chunk of Israelis don’t use their side mirrors in the first place.

  1. Side mirrors are for the weak-willed who lack the confidence in their own superior driving skills and continue to drive their unadorned electric cars with a lack of patriotic fervor. Long live Israel!

  2. That’s why I didn’t use them last year, they were significantly reducing my field of vision.

    This year I tried putting them so the elastic was around the mirror-holder, not over the top. One side worked OK, but the other side it just slipped down around the “neck” of the mirror-holder.

    Nice idea, but not so practical.
