Logically, when a car travels round a bend, it should be most 'comfortable' to stay as wide on the bend as possible, as the turning radius will be greater and therefore the forces acting outwards at a given speed will be less. (In the limit, a bend of infinite radius - ie a straight line - will cause no sideways forces, which is why I say this is logical). However... The fact is that, when we drive round a bend, the natural tendency is to stick as tight to the inside of the bend as possible. I am not talking about taking a 'racing line' across a corner, but a long, continuous bend. Why do we do this when logic tells us that this will be less comfortable for us and our passengers?
