Are you planning an awesome holiday? Before you drive away, make sure you understand which side of the road traffic people drives on. Reversing the side of the road you usually drive on can be daunting, so it’s good to be prepared. As a general rule, England, and former British colonies such as New Zealand and Australia are on the left, while the USA, Latin America and Europe drive on the right. Asia is a mixed bag: China and the Philippines are right-handers, but in Japan cars travel on the left.
Use this handy map to know which side of the road you’ll drive on at your destination, and you will be alright! Or maybe all left! All the yellow coloured countries drive on the right side and all the blue coloured countries drive on the left side.
Why do some countries drive on the right and some on the left?
