Why Drive on the Left?

Why do some countries drive on the left and others the right?

In the UK we drive on the left, but most of our neighbours drive on the right. It might not surprise you to know, but 35% of the world drive on the left. Are you thinking we’re right and they’re wrong?

Since most people are right-handed, swordsmen preferred to keep to the left in order to have their right arm nearer to an opponent and their scabbard further from him.

Safe driving, from Britannia!
