They put the steering wheel on the wrong side...LOL
I know, LOL!! I don't mind either, doesn't take too long to adapt!!
would be manually shifting with your left hand.
In 99 I spent three weeks in the UK. I constantly drove onto the left curb (kerb) until a guy told me, "Think of it as your car has an outrigger on the left." That worked. I went back a few years ago and actually drove more miles in the UK than I did in the US that year. My body had internalized driving on the left--no more problems. So I could concentrate on the roundabouts. If you've never drive through a triple roundabout, each with half a dozen exits, with buildings in the middle (like in Portsmouth) or a train trestle overhead (like in Bath), you've never really lived. I got out of the car at the rental place at Heathrow--and kissed the ground.
I agree, when I'm over in the US, I have to change gear with my right hand and it feels really unnatural. Luckily all the left hookers I have driven have been auto's, so no worries.
If you want fun, take a RHD car (like mine) accross to France (like at the end of this month) and drive on the right hand side of the road - now that is a challenge I enjoy!!
I drove for a couple years in Japan, and they are bass ackwards as well. I tell you there was a couple of times here in the states where I scared the living shit outta people when I took off on the wrong side of the road. I must admit, it scared the shit outta me as well!
