Left hand turns don't require signaling, nor stopping.
Have I got it right?
That's my understanding. Hence the standard of having the rear brake on the left.
And here I was thinking it was a thing from riding moto's. Front brake should always be on the right. The left is the clutch. The other way round feels weird to me.

God knows why. I definitely feel I can modulate my front brake better using my right hand than my left. I am right handed though and have ridden moto's for many years.
