interestingly (maybe) we DO drive on the correct
side of the road
When knights used to fight each other etc on horseback with swords, as most people are right handed (in fact Left handedness was at one time satanistic etc), in order to chop/stab/fight each other they had
to each ride on the others left (as we now drive). But Napoleon (I think) cos he lost his right arm decreed that everyone in his empire had to use their left arm like he did for sword play, and so to enable combat on horse, thus they had to ride toward each other on the right. Now being a continental chap and franco german hungaro etc relations, this spread and became standard over there, and with car/road development mainly being over there the rest is history.
Thus we remained true to the correct way of passing an opponant (or other driver coming your way) and the continent and most of the world followed the rediculous 'rules' impossed by a French geezer with too big an ego, and too much power.
Also interestingly all over the world, the sea laws/rules reflect our roads - i.e. two boats approaching each other (of similar size and power) each turn to port (left) to pass
So there you go
we are right, they are wrong
