I looked up motorcycle laws and some specified that you needed to be able to see two hundred yards behind you, although most states did not say anything regarding mirrors.

I imagine that few states neglect cars, though, and it is probably something similar, and I do not really think that you can quite see behind you with an inside mirror, just over your shoulder, say, at your 7 o'clock and your 5 o'clock.
