Default [ASKED] fishtail to the RIGHT

I have a perception that Corvettes (and all cars) nearly always fishtail to the RIGHT. Iím wondering if Corvettes are engineered to do this (different shaft sizes, (e)LSDs, alignments, etcetera), OR, is there some physics explanation (road crowning, differences in weight, etcetera), to explain my perception.

Perhaps, it is a safety feature designed to prevent cars from fishtailing into on-coming traffic. Thx!

I would guess the road crowning.
