How they proved that London's Double-decker buses were not a tipping hazard, 1933

What if it were a left-hand drive as in the US? Think that might have been enough to adversely effect the center of gravity as displayed in the photo. Notice that the test wasn't with the bus leaning to its right? Wonder how far it could have tilted that way? One thing is certain, passengers ought rest assured during at least those wild left turns!

One other point neglected to mention, the seats appear to be unoccupied---meaning yet one more factor omitted in the test.
