They are mainly for tourists from parts of the world where you drive on the left side of the road.

So this is our way of saying that we are a truly global city and we welcome people from everywhere and that we care about their safety in every way.

Yes, I know they're useful ... even for locals. I often criticize my own mother for not observing the traffic before she steps out on the road. She says she does but I've observed her eyes and she clearly does not. Neither do a lot of pedestrians I encounter.
