Why do companies make blindspot mirrors that don't give the correct distance of vehicles in the mirrors?

Most people are terrible at judging distance , so what difference would it make.
If you had a radar device that measured distance and told you “ car in right hand lane is 50m behind you”, most people wouldn’t know if that was safe to pull out or not.

If it gave the correct distance, then you wouldn't be able to see enough in it, so you would still have a blind spot.

It is due to the convex mirror which although allows a better view, the physics of a convex mirror causes the image to be smaller than reality. It's really there to let you know that someone is there and to turn your head and LOOK!
