i knit left handed. and while that is perfectly normal on most of the european continent, in ireland and UK, knitters tend to knit right handed
How intriguing--these are the opposites of the way they drive!

bingley >> Think about it. If you're facing the front of the car, what side does the driver sit on, the left or the right?

Every time I drive, I face the front of the car. I sit on the left (here) and drive on the right.

Most of the time, yes--I use the mirrors.

oh yes, me too.. i find if turn my head round, i 'stear' wrong.. but if i watch the mirrors, i am fine. --an aspect of my dyslexia-- nothing really to do with reading, but with how my mind processes information.

i went to a party, a few years ago now, many guests had arrived before me, the long 200(meters or so) driveway, narrow to begin with, was lined with cars (both sides!)

i backed my car in... all the way to the end, to make it easier to unload, (and to pull out, in case i had to move it in an emergency) the though occurred to me, i might be less able to contol my car as the party progressed, and pulling out, would be easier if influenced...

i used my exterior mirrors to do all the backing up (my car was stuffed to the rooftop with 'things' i brought to the party.)
needless to say, i didn't leave a series of dents and dings in the other cars!

And if your car is hitched to a trailer you're steering double-wrong, or right.

When steering the car in full flight
With a trailer (whether heavy or light)
Good nuncle declares
“Things work better in pairs:
Two wrongs in reverse make a right!”
