Visitors from other countries are at a higher risk for pedestrian vs. automobile accidents when they come to the United Kingdom. It's pretty obvious why: In most countries, you look to your left before crossing to be sure nobody is driving toward you on the right side of the road. In the UK, you've got to look to your right and watch for oncoming traffic immediately to your left. A good rule of thumb? No matter what country you're visiting, look both ways before walking across the street.
