The Wrong Side
Why did we suddenly flop from driving left side of the road a hundred years ago, to driving on the right? Suddenly it seemed like a good idea to move steering wheels to the opposite sides of our cars. Poor cross-country travellers and truckers–it must be disorientating to be staring the micterating dogs and elderly women in the face as you try to make a right turn with a tub of highly flammable anhydrous ammonia or crunchy potato chips swaying dangerously behind you.
Still there must be a reason for this odd change. I think it encourages the motor strip in our brains to work overtime which probably just makes us smarter. Or maybe it had something to do with the Fall of Rome. Either way, the game of chicken is lethal no matter which side of the road you crash on.
