After the accident at SFKK, they told employees that they had to physically look up and not to rely on the mirrors. I'm not sure if that rule has changed back though.
As for the new cable setup, maybe it can stand higher winds which was the main argument for CF to go with the Windseekers (even though they will shut down in high winds anyways).
