 Rule of Thumb (The).Rule the Roost (To). 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Rule of the Road (The).
“The rule of the road’s an anomaly quite,
In riding or driving along:
If you go to the left you are sure to go right,
If you go to the right you go wrong.”
It is not so in France.   1
