Crossing the road and looking the wrong way!

In India, vehicles are driven on the left side of the road, same as in the UK, while in Canada, vehicles are driven on the right side of the road. Now, in India, when crossing any road with 2-way traffic, you look to your right and then rush to the middle of the road if the lane is empty, then look to the left and run as fast as possible to the other side – pretty simple really. Now in Canada, as a pedestrian, my greatest psychological challenge is to overcome this subconscious tendency to look to my right when crossing the road – here, you need to do it the other way round, as in look to the left first, cross to the middle of the road, then look to the right and cross again. I hope I can get it sorted out before some vehicle knocks me down :hmmm:
