So you are driving down the road and see a for sale sign on a car-boat or anything. You turn your head and the next thing you know you are in the left lane or the shoulder depending where the sign is. Before this you we're in your lane. Now our heads are not attached to our arms but the vehicle wants to go in the direction we are looking. WHY? I know you must be thinking this guy is losing it. Well up here in Vermont that's what happens when your neighbor is a moose and it's to cold out to change the oil. crzy

LHD. (Left Hand Driving).

You put your left hand on the wheel, and you use your right hand as you will with a standard/stick-shift.

You only use your right hand when you have to...

Like when you have to be the first to see the moose antlers on the car...

P.S. you are still good.
Tell me when you see "magnetic driving": a guy drives a bit left, and 4 cars after him do the same. a guy drives right and over the line, and 4 cars after him do the same.

People tend to drive toward whatever they're looking at. It's why drunk drivers will crash into a car parked in the breakdown lane of a highway at night. Most drivers who are alert will steer away. That's why it's always a bad idea to use the breakdown lane unless it's a real emergency.

I've seen several people fall off the treadmill at the gym. It's usually because they weren't paying attention and turn the heads one way or the other.

It's called target fixation.

Or in your case, Moose Fixation.

It's due to over-sensitive steering. You must have grown up driving big GM/Ford/Chryslers that had steering with 6-8 turns lock-to-lock.

Or you have a Moose attraction. Not that we pass judgements here...

Lady on my paper route swatted a bee on her dashboard.
She picked it up with a rolled newspaper and not wanting to pass the bee across her body she reached over to her right to throw it out the right window.
The resulting lean went through her left arm and she drove fast into a tree.

She destroyed her face and car real well.

Good thing she didn't risk getting stung.

Yes, it is natural to turn towards whatever you're looking at, especially if you turn your head. As a moose, I would know!
