Could that explain why I have noticed an increase in the number of
incidents involving drivers that are caught driving the wrong way around
a roundabout? The most notorious wrong-way drivers also start honking
at other drivers who are going around the normal direction. They must
know what they are doing wrong, but they seem to believe that the 50
drivers opposing them in the roundabout should not be there. I have
also seen some of these wrong-way drivers continue to drive on the wrong
side of the street after exiting the roundabout, as if the blue arrow
sign and the median are not a sufficient indication of to which side of
the street the lane continues.

Questions for you: have you ever taken any kind of driving course? What
did it teach? Was it high-school driver's ed or some kind of more
advanced course? Did you ever run your opinions on LFBing by the
instructor? What did he think of them?
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.

I don't know if you have any experience driving in countries where one
drives on the left side of the road or not, but I have. I can tell you
that for me, the adjustment is a bit difficult and I have to really
concentrate when trying to control the vehicle, learning to use the turn
signal stalk on the right side, rather than left side of the steering
column, drive on the correct side of the road, and even adjusting where
I look when I need to check the mirrors, etc.
I don't think you thought your analogy all the way through.
