I use them all.
Yeah, like I said in my other post, there was a motorcyclist who literally stayed in my blind spot and was going the same speed as me. The only reason he didn't get hit or cut off by me was the fact that I knew he was there because I saw him earlier and was able to hear him. It was just so frustrating cause I had to change lanes and I could hear the guy but could not see him. He was in a position where I almost had to stick my head out the window to see where he was. I was moving my head at all angles using the mirrors and also shoulder checked but he was just not visible at all. His motorcycle was a smaller sized one too though.
