In a recent discussion in the commuter forum on defensive cycling techniques, a number of posters mentioned riding on the left hand side of one way streets as a safety measure. The reasons given make sense: greater visibility, larger passing differences as drivers are better able to gauge distances when they are closer, and less chance of getting hooked as people tend to be more careful when turning left than right. But I've never seen this mentioned before. Any thoughts on the practice?
(Readers living in countries where they drive on the left can switch right for left above.)
