This dilemma has worried me for some years. Now that im trying to teach my son road safety it has become important to resolve, because it keeps spinning around in my head seeking a place of rest.
We were taught (and I presume still are), that when crossing a road Look left - Look right - Look left again.
My problem is that there is no logic to this. It seems to be inherited from left hand drive countries.
I prefer my last look to be towards the cars approaching me, note thos that went past already (maybe that is so you do not see what hits you?)
Given that cars are approaching from our right, it seems logical to look Right, then left, then right again?
But then again, Im really bad with directions so my theory may be seriously misplaced.
