I wonder how I would go driving on the wrong side of the road (right side), I guess it would come naturally eventually.
It is the hardest thing to drive on the left side. My husband has had to do it in New Zealand, England and Japan and dreaded it.
The nothing to do it really, we (english) have always driven on the left. We crossed the the channel a lots of times, and it is easy.
I thought it's only in Great Britain.
I didn´t think so many countries drive on the left! Kisses:)
I hear these people have trouble playing American games for the same reason. They drive on the "wrong" side of the road and crash.
Tried once, didn't go over well
It seems weird to us, but driving on the right side seems weird to them!
It is so difficult when you rent a car in countries who drive on the left.
I'll be traveling to England next year (I hope) and thought it would be great if there was an arcade type of thing where you sit in a car with the steering wheel on the right side and the visual on the screen would be showing what it would be like to drive on the wrong side of the road. I won't be renting a car there. I'll to taxis and avoid any accidents.
I was really surprised when we got to Japan and found that they drive on the left side of the road. I hadn't expected that in a country with no history of British colonialism. But I guess there was enough British influence in Japan when it first opened to the West that the Japanese adopted that model.
apparently they chose it after some British ties (mostly rail) gave them a model to base their roads.
I don't know if I could ever get used to that.Have a great Friday.
oh, I didn't know that in Japan and India they also drive on the left
I don't think I could ever master driving from the left! It seems so unnatural!
Very interesting! As one who grew up in Great Britain, the last time I visited I could not get used to driving on the other side of the road. Approaching roundabouts was a night mare ;)
I'd be one confused driver if I had to drive on the left side of the road!
If I ever go to one of those countries, I'm taxi'ing it. No way would I be able to figure that out!
In The Netherlands we also drive on the right side but occasionaly we have to drive left when we are in the UK or Thailand. Avoiding busy places.Greetings,Filip
Believe me, they don't like when you say "wrong" side of the road, either! It's not wrong to them! We drove around in Ireland on the left side of the road. It was interesting to say the least!
