    One is best to prevent trouble, not go where trouble is, leave when trouble shows and have the skill sets to deal with trouble is one has to deal with trouble.

    Mirrors are tools that enable one to do all the above.

    These mirrors may be professional quality one-way mirrors, convex anti-theft mirrors, vehicle mirrors, decorative mirrors in a home or business, or just the reflection off a storefront, motor vehicle or any reflective surface.

    For instance the way you set down a pair of sunglasses on a table, will allow you to see behind you, or the shiny napkin dispenser...adjust your table to reflect your surroundings. Your guest might use the mirror or glass from the salad bar, or dessert table...

    Caveat: Mirrors are used by trouble, evil, and those that wish one harm. These are aware of mirrors and use them to assist them in awareness of surroundings.

    Many business settings have one-way mirrors and convex mirrors , these do deter some from getting ideas of say for instance shop-lifting.

    Flip side is the criminal also knows to avoid these mirrors, and in fact use them to see if for instance if the lady in the back is by herself counting money or if anyone is down a hallway for "employees only".

    It is the intent of a user of a tool, not the tool, mirrors are tools, so while a mirror can be a safety tool for employees , a criminal can also use that mirror to make sure if someone is not around the corner either.

    Mirrors on the street, walking in a mall, a store, using a public bathroom and other examples, allows one to increase the ability to watch behind them, and scan in more directions.

    Note on vehicle mirrors-
    Adjust these properly meaning have them adjusted to see the lane on either side of driver and passenger on side mirrors.

    One can see trouble approaching, and one can evade more safely if they know the lanes are going to be free.
