Wow! I didn't know that any continental European countries ever drove on the left. I thought that was strictly a UK thing. But geez, having driven on the left, why would they change?? Pure chaos!

I'll be darned. Unless I'm wrong, those are all former British possessions.

Laughing  I miss that guy!

I'm glad that Canada didn't go the usual left-side route of the other British possessions.  As much traffic as there is between our two countries, I can imagine how it would look at the border as the traffic switched from one side to the other. Yikes
