A Sturgeon Bay auto technician says the days of mirrors on semi-trucks may be coming to an end. Many newer trucks are using updated camera technology that gets put on the back trucks to help eliminate blind spots, improve visibility in the dark and help eliminate glare that the mirrors create. Randy Sahs, the owner of Sahs Auto Collision in Sturgeon Bay, says he sees some trucks currently using this camera technology. Sahs thinks that in 5-10 years almost every truck on the road will be using cameras instead of mirrors.
Taking the mirrors off of trucks will also create less drag and raise fuel efficiency.
