The reason that Europeans in general stay to the left in 1 and the right in 2 is that this opens up a free "lane" for emergency vehicles. This is the law in most European countries.

It works fantastically. And it makes a lot of nice room for motorbikes, too. Conveniently, the bikes can slide into slots between cars when necessary to open up the required space for police, ambulances, etc.
