Left / right driving countries
World map of the left/right driving countries

It is clearly visible, that most former British colonies - with some exceptions -, drive on the left side of the road, whereas the United States of America, Latin American and European countries drive on the right.


With just a very few exceptions, almost always, in countries where people driving on the right-hand side of the road, the cars are built so that the driver sits on the left-hand side of the car, while driving on the left-hand side of the road usually implies that the driver’s seat is on the right-hand side of the car.
