I suppose we should give the final word to the Germans who did, after all, invent the internal combustion engine powered car.

It's just that the words "German" and "far right" never sit well together.

A few years ago Samoa changed from RHT to LHT. It was mainly about sources of second-hand cars--i.e. moving from ex-American (-Samoan) gas-guzzlers to ex-NZ & -Oz Japanese/Korean rust-buckets... or something.

Sweden went the other way, a bit earlier.

... before that, Romans (et al.) kept left.

... & the Austro-Hungarian empire used to keep left.

... there's also a road in Bolivia.

Has been discussed before on these pages but seems to stem from passing with your sword arm (most people being right-handed) toward whoever is passing you - just in case they want to rob you.

Guess we left side drivers are just more paranoid.

This is an actual sign we use here



direct result from American tourists who caused accidents. Don't mean to sound like I'm having a shot at all Yanks, but how dumb can one get and not realise that everyone else is on the left side of the road and the driver driving is on the right side of the vehicle along with the steering wheel and so on seriously, how dumb would one be

How's that old saying go, "When in Rome"

When I was a kid a American friend of a friend of my mothers died in a head on. She was in an oz car. Before you think she was cruising along enjoying a close up view of the scenery, I know the road has many hill road cuttings. From one corner to the next you're continually seeing road signs.

Dunno what was going through their mind. (No windshield jokes, please) Maybe a moment of forgetfulness, or force of habit? I guess if they're going to panic and swerve it'll be to the right.

The majority of the world drives in the RHS. However, they're the weirdos.
