I just let the vegetation fold the passenger side mirror in, that is
unless I have a passenger, once it's out of the way I normally leave it.
With the drivers side one I try to remember to fold that one in myself
before entering the lane. Doesn't really matter though as its easy
enough to put it right from the cab.
I find that if you keep getting out every time then you'll only get
pissed off as it gets knocked out of whack in the next lane, meaning
you have to get out and straighten it, ad infinitum.
