BACK RIGHT TIRE: Why is this one always a victim?

I had three punctures patched in my E90, all three the back right tire.

I am now having my second puncture patched in my E93, back right tire.

Why is this particular tire so prone to punctures? What am I doing wrong?

I've picked up 4 nails and screws since I bought my car and all of them involved the rear tires, with most being the right side.

I asked my tire guy about this. He said that what often happens is that the front tires stand up or kick up the nails or screws and the rear tires run over them while they are standing up.

Why more on the right side? Could it be that it is closer to the curb where most debris tends to collect?
