on travel technology …and everything else
I came across an interesting post today on Right hand vs Left hand traffic in the world. Then found some even more interesting info on Wikipedia.
Seems some 66% of the world drives on the right hand side like us here in Kuwait and the remaining drive on the left hand side like in India. What’s interesting is that many countries changed from left to right. The legend of the chart above is below.
Personally, I don’t see much of a difference in either as long as your steering wheel is on the appropriate side.
Either way I’m always extra cautious when I drive in a different country and guilty of driving in the wrong direction a few times.
