Why we British drive on the left – and so why the rest of the world is wrong February 2, 2007

This is an interesting article on something that you’ve probably always wondered about, but never really bothered to look up. Why does nearly half the world drive on the left, and the others on the right? Suffice to say that driving on the left was the original, and so the best, way up until Napoleon and Ford decided otherwise. I would have put Britain, and all the other lefties, in the significant majority, however looking at the graphic at the end of thi spost it looks like a far more even split than I would ever have imagined.
