Not very intuitive but, perhaps in rare cases, necessary.  What if the road
one-way to both vehicles and pedestrians but vehicles go from A to B whilst
pedestrians go from B to A?

I was taught, many years ago, that if there was no pavement you walked
on the side of the road that faced oncoming traffic so you could see cars
on your side of the road coming towards you rather than have them come
up behind you.  This principle might be legally enforced on a road which is
one-way to both pedestrians and traffic on safety grounds.
