    Link: American-To-European Car Mod - This mod looks good in theory, but who has the grapes to take it out for a test spin on a busy road?

    Mail carriers all over rural america drive vehicles equipped this way. It is quite common in fact.

    "American-To-European Car Mod".

    *facepalm*

    @ eugenius: Thanks for perpetuating the stereotype of the ignorant American. I guess that you didn`t know that in the U.S. Virgin Islands (yes, the good old USA) they drive on the left as well?

    In fact, one drives on the left in all of these places:

    "American-To-European Car Mod".

    *facepalm*

    Thank you eugenius for perpetuating the stereotype of the ignorant American.

    There is a long list of countries where one would drive on the left.

    Maybe a better title would have been: "Left hand drive to right hand drive mod"...

    As long as the wheel doesn`t snap off or the mechanism connecting the two doesn`t fail, it might work pretty well. You would still have to deal with the HUD being on the wrong side.

    @Buladh: Ireland is changing to drive on the left. They are going to conduct a pilot scheme with buses and trucks. If successful, all traffic will switch to driving on the left.

    simple, that`s a vehicle being used by a rural mail person. They used their own vehicles and modify them either use the belt like that or they use a bike chain. They can then pull up to a mail box and not have to get out of the car.

    It`s not "to European" it`s to British. The rest of us have it on the proper side.

    I never quite understood why some countries drive on the right and some on the left (and the same with the wheels in the car). It`d make sense to have everyone the same.

    @Mister C it has to do with knights and whatnot. During the feudal era it made sense for knights to ride on the left side because the right was their sword hand. So British colonies and the like usually stick to the left. The rest of the world does the right.

    It`s not as hard as people think. Yeah it takes a little adjustment but it`s not a huge deal to drive on the right.

    @bolle54, we drive on the right in Australia too.
    I`m sure there would be other countries that also do, such as New Zealand.

    I had to log in just to come here and nag about the fact that some ignorant American still thinks that Europe and the UK are the same thing. So this is me nagging about the fact that someone might still maybe believe that cos those lads over in Britainland drive on the left side, everyone in Europe must do the same :`< (ain`t true, brah!)
    Finished with the compulsory bitchin`. Nice pic, never seen it before and I`d love to give that masterpiece a go. But why the fuuu would ya use that in traffic? Safer and probably easier to just drive sitting on the wrong side. Just follow the friccin` rules.

    I don`t mind coming here to tell some a.s.s.hole from the Europe to go f.u.c.k. himself. So this me sayin` that cos the fact is that a lot of people do know this. It just so happens that this one person didn`t and he felt the need to be a pretentious f.u.c.k tard, you pretentious f.u.c.k. tard.

    I think it`d be easier just to drive on the left from the left-side driver`s seat. There are plenty of places where that`s done routinely.
