Con Black,

1) The answer to this is easy. Stuff can pop out between parked cars. On the curb side, you've got the width of the sidewalk at least to see things appear from behind hedges (which on most side streets aren't all that common). Therefore drivers are more worried about children chasing balls from the car side than the sidewalk side.

2) As above, there are now hidden places on both sides for things to appear from. Plus, most drivers aren't truly aware of the space their car takes up, thus drive more slowly when they feel restricted.
