So we all have cows to thank for making us drive on one side of the road or the other? I didn't see that coming >:)

Amazingly, this is the only thing America is doing right. Now please, switch from 14th century units to proper ones, with the internet, the entire world suffers because of that.

I am from right side country. By studing this topic I must agree that left side driving is safer and therefore better.

It does not really matter because regardless if it is left or right everything is mirrored.
Left hand drive vehicles the driver is in the centre of the road and so is right hand drivers because the oncoming traffic is on the other side and steering column is on other side

so depending how easily you swing your sword depends on witch side the enemy is passing :D

#7 Not everything is mirrored. Example, both sytems have ''right before left'' rule. Only left side drivers have a bigger angel to see oncoming traffic and more time to react to it.

Most people are right handed. Right foot does the accelerator. Right hand should be on the wheel when the left does the gears.

#10 the gas and the breaks are not switched, you only have to shift with your left hand!

If you would have to brake with the left foot, when you drive a english car you would cause MASSIVE havoc.

Try it!...but only with low speed, and when there is nothing around.

We need to round up all the people who drive on the left and make them work in factories unpaid and for little food.
