@aaronpk The shadows are what got me.
Also, for driving, I'll share an experience. In cities and towns, I found it easy to drive on the left, because all the signs and traffic kept meu honest. It was when I got out to a lonely highway with a simple stripe down the middle that I had trouble. There was nothing to distinguish it from a U.S. back country road, except those idiots a few miles ahead coming at me in my lane...oh, wait...
@Miraz Yeah, I saw some and I think I remember reading that there was a plan to add them everywhere. I developed my own method, which was to look out the window next to me and down to find the centerline. If it wasn't there, and I saw the shoulder, I knew I was wrong.
@cliffordbeshers Excellent approach. On the now distant and rare occasions when I was overseas and driving on the 'other' side of the road turns were what got me.
@Miraz Yup. I worked on that so hard that when I got back to the U.S., I kept wanting to turn into the wrong lane for something like two years.
Roundabouts created a moment of sheer terror. Then I realized I could follow the car in front of me. If I couldn't figure out how to get off, I could go around again.
@cliffordbeshers Fortunately they have cars that are also backwards. The rule I learned in my one UK visit was to keep the center line on the driver's side, just like in the US but with different cars. I love roundabouts -- drove from London through Dorsetshire without hitting a stop light -- but yes, they were scary.
@JMaxB To be clear, I love them as well. It was just that crucial moment of 'which way does this thing turn?'
