No person shall drive a motor vehicle on a highway which motor vehicle is so constructed or loaded as to prevent the driver from obtaining a view of the highway to the rear by looking backward from the driver’s position, unless such vehicle is equipped with a mirror so located as to reflect to the driver a view of the highway to the rear of such vehicle. In addition, all motor vehicles shall be equipped with an outside rearview mirror on the driver’s side which shall be positioned to give the driver a rear-viewing angle from the driver’s side of the vehicle. Rearview mirrors may be positioned on the helmet or visor worn by the operator of a motorcycle if the helmet is securely attached to the head of the operator. Every commercial vehicle of one-half ton capacity or more, operating upon the streets of this state, shall be equipped with two mirrors, one on each side, so adjusted that the operator shall have a clear view of the highway behind such commercial vehicle. The outside mirrors shall not be deemed to be a part of the vehicle for the purpose of determining the maximum width of said vehicle.
