Sure, let's practice a few weeks in our own country.

I've heard of why the Brits drive left and the US drive right...interesting. I didn't realise how many countries drove on the right.

aussies drive in the left...i think lol

I always wondered about the lefty vs righty driving. I'm left handed, would it be more comfortable to drive in the UK?

yes that is a bit weird if they dont want you to drive on the wrong side of the road in other countries why are they telling us to do it in our own country?

Nice and informative, although I got the feeling that the writer thought of driving on the left as some quaint British custom, like afternoon tea or something.

KMeTG, the writer to me sounded English, and saying that the RIGHT side of the road was "wrong".

And to be honest I dont "get" this site, it says "these people drive on the left, and these on the right" but that's about it, doesnt give any reasoning or anything.

its cool, if you click on back to home page then go to the bottom of the introdution theres a link to "the last page of the internet" which sends you to a big red button, which turns the internet off.........give me all your money people or i swear il press that button!
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/26/06 - 9:53:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
oh noooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!I clicked on the big red button and my office blew up!

Woah, thats really interesting. But I would think the attackers would come from the bushes on the side of the road, not the road it's self

^^ BigBonny: Did you read any of it? I thought it gave plenty of "reasoning". Almost too much.

And the right side of the road isn't wrong, exactly, but it is the French, peasant, newer side. So if you love new french peasants, you drive on the right. It's a fact.

LOL..so driving on the left is the old less civilized way based on when we had horses and driving on the right is the new advanced way in the technilogical world..haha..just kidding.. interesting read though.

ooh i pushed the button. i thoguht it was guna b like a sabotage.

haveing to change sides when going to another country isn't so much the problem, the problem is if you have the same car, and your steering wheel is on the wrong side.. then u can't see round the cars in front of you.. darn.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/26/06 - 12:17:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
is it really that complicated? u just... drive on the left... also
"...drive on the wrong side of the road"
or they drive on the correct side & u drive on the wrong side???
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/26/06 - 4:29:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
wouldn't it be kinda dangerous to 'practice' driving on the left side in a country that drives on the right?
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/26/06 - 5:02:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
"In the past, almost everybody travelled on the left side of the road because that was the most sensible option for feudal, violent societies"
yes that is on that site.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/26/06 - 6:32:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
uhhhh this really had no point wat so ever
who the hell cares y you drive on the left or right?
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/26/06 - 6:39:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Here is the point:

France, Germany, Russia

Instead of beating the crap out of eachother everytime, we should invade Britain!

Jetzt ist KRIEG!!!

"you are advised to practise this(driving on the left) in your country of origin for a week or two before driving in the UK" lol hopefully not on any busy streets!

Just to point out, this is not made by any official government body in the UK. it was made by someone in belgium.
