Description

[0001]
TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a side mirror cover for covering a side mirror main body of a side mirror provided to protrude to the side of a vehicle, and a lamp used for the cover.
[0002]
[Prior art]
2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, a vehicle is provided with a room mirror in a vehicle compartment for a driver to check the rear of the vehicle, and side mirrors are provided on both sides of a vehicle body so as to protrude toward the vehicle side. With these mirrors, the driver can visually recognize the rear of the vehicle without turning around. Although these room mirrors and side mirrors are determined in a unified manner depending on the type of vehicle, the side mirrors that make up the exterior of the vehicle are shaped to satisfy the aesthetic feeling. Side mirrors in so-called passenger cars are mainly mounted on doors, and the shape of the mirrors is designed to satisfy the aesthetic feeling in consideration of the appearance of the entire vehicle. In addition, due to the recent diversification of consumer preferences, there has been a demand for special decorations depending on consumer preferences even in the side mirrors.
[0003]
In addition, at the front of the vehicle, along with a direction indicator for notifying the rotation direction of the vehicle, and a headlight as an illuminating device during night driving, an oncoming vehicle or a third party walking on the road may be driven in the width direction of the vehicle at night. A vehicle width light for recognizing the size at is provided. An oncoming vehicle or a third person walking on the road can recognize the size of the vehicle in the width direction using the vehicle width light, and can recognize the turning direction of the vehicle by blinking the direction indicator. Then, a so-called safety is achieved by driving or walking such that a third person walking on an oncoming vehicle or a road avoids contact with the vehicle.
[0004]
On the other hand, in the case of a conventional vehicle width light, which is provided at the front of the vehicle, the width of the vehicle body at the front of the vehicle can be recognized, but the size of the entire vehicle including the side mirror in the width direction is recognized. There is a problem that cannot be done. That is, since the side mirror is provided so as to protrude laterally from the vehicle body, the size of the entire vehicle including the side mirror in the width direction is larger than the width indicated by the vehicle width light. Therefore, it is necessary for an oncoming vehicle or a third party walking on the road to estimate the size of the entire vehicle in the width direction by assuming the projection amount of the side mirror to the width indicated by the vehicle width light. Since the protrusion amounts are different, its estimation is relatively difficult. In particular, in a vehicle such as a large truck in which a side mirror protrudes laterally larger than the vehicle body, there is a problem that the above estimation becomes extremely difficult.
[0005]
In order to solve this problem, a side provided with a mirror cover main body configured to be mountable on the front surface of a side mirror main body of a vehicle and a side mirror lamp mounted on the mirror cover main body so as to be visible from the front of the vehicle. A mirror cover has been proposed (for example, see Patent Document 1). Since the side mirror cover is attached independently to the front of the side mirror body, if the cover itself is made into a complicated shape, or if the side mirror cover is colored or plated, the entire side mirror can be made as such. It is possible to obtain a high value-added product at a low cost as compared with a case of performing a simple shape or performing processing. When the side mirror lamp mounted on the mirror cover body is turned on, the position of the side mirror can be visually recognized from the front of the vehicle, and the size of the entire vehicle including the side mirror in the width direction can be recognized. It has become.

[Problems to be solved by the invention]
However, considering the use of the side mirror lamp attached to the mirror cover body as a turn signal, the blinking of the side mirror lamp can be controlled not only by oncoming vehicles but also by third parties walking to the side of the vehicle. It is preferable that the recognition be made to In this case, it is conceivable to separately and independently attach a side lamp to an outer end of the mirror cover body on the side of the vehicle. However, there is a problem that the number of lamps to be mounted is increased and the appearance is deteriorated, and the unit cost is increased due to an increase in manufacturing cost and the number of parts.
It is an object of the present invention to provide a relatively inexpensive side mirror cover, a side mirror main body, and a lamp used for the side mirror, in which blinking or lighting of the side mirror lamp can be recognized from the side of the vehicle.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a side mirror cover, a side mirror main body, and a lamp used for the side mirror cover, in which blinking or lighting of the side mirror lamp can be effectively recognized from a relatively wide range including the rear of the vehicle. is there.
It is still another object of the present invention to provide a side mirror cover, a side mirror body, and a lamp used for the side mirror cover, which can be attached to the mirror cover body by a relatively simple operation.
