THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE ROAD
By John Ross Harvey
In North America
The Right side of the road to drive on
Is the Right side of the road
Not the left side
When taking a curve
You don’t go to the left to cut the corner
When the road has a chicane
Or serpentine bend
You not take the straight-line approach
You stay on the right hand side
Why would anyone think cutting a corner
Or straightening a bend is
How one drives?
People are coming the other way
Unless they are as bad as this
You will hit each other
I’ve had to yell at people heading towards me!
I stay on the right side
Cutting the corner puts you on the left
That’s the wrong side!
Don’t be wrong; stay right!
