Why do we prefer a convex mirror

Why do we prefer a convex mirror as a rear-view mirror in vehicles ?

Convex mirror is preferred as a rear-view mirror because it always gives an erect, though diminished image. Also, it has a wider field of view as it is curved outwards. Thus, convex mirror enables the driver to view much larger area than would be possible with a plane mirror.
