Mirror Images?

I have a question about mirrors that I wondered if you could answer/explain.
Why do the wing mirror on the driver’s side of the car always make images look smaller than the wing mirror on the passenger side?


Answer:
Convex mirrors — those which have an inflated surface — make images appear larger than they actually are.  Concave mirrors — those which have depressed centers — make images appear smaller than they actually are.
