Why in rear view mirror it is written "objects in the mirror are closer than they appear?"

Expert Answer
The rear view mirror uses a convex mirror. The purpose of this type of mirror is to increase the field of view behind the vehicles.
 
However, the image also appears diminished when viewed through a convex mirror.
We percieve that the image is smaller for an object which is farther. But, the vehicles will not be as farther as they are percieved.
 
Hence, it is written on rear view mirrors that, "objects in the mirror are closer than they appear".
