Driving ... Left or RightIf you’ve ever been in a car, you’ve noticed there’s a certain widely practiced custom. Everybody sends their car down one preferred side of the road — left or right — depending on what country they happen to be in.

Sticking to your side of the road . . . it’s not just a good idea. It’s the law.
