Expert Answer:

Polar winds blow from high pressure on poles to temperate region as there is low air pressure. Westerlies are the hot winds which rise from equator and get cools and come down and then blow towards temperate region. So, both polar winds and westerlies blow towards 60 degree N and 60 degree S latitude.
