Only few select car manufactures try to design cars for both sides. The majority of the world population drives on the right. The most obvious benefits of choosing LHD cars is ease and safety when driving in a country that drives on the right side of the road, which is especially beneficial for frequent travellers to mainland Europe. There are many strict driving laws in the advanced countries. Signs, toll booths and traffic lights are bespoke for LHD cars and not for both. Traffic throughout the world is restricted to either the left or right hand side of the road and requires regulations fundamental to traffic flow.
Driving tips for LHD cars:
While you may not be used to it, getting around in LHD cars on the right side of the road is every bit as safe as driving on the left. You have to follow the tips below to get enjoyable journey cruising the highways in any destination.
1 If one has never used a left hand drive car before, it is advisable to choose the one with automatic transmission.
2 If your hand-eye co-ordinations are not as accurate as you would like them to be or you are nervous at the time of driving or losing control while you take your eyes away from the road, it is advisable to drive on wider roads or road where traffic is minimal before going into the busy roads.
3 You need more practice to learn the controls and equipment in LHD cars. If you are practicing manual left hand drive, always remember that the pedals like accelerator, brake, clutch are in exactly the same position from left to right. You have to concentrate only on the location of the gear-stick and handbrake in the LHD.
4 Check speedometer precisely. Many countries that drive on the right measure speed in kilometres per hour and you may be used to measuring speed in miles per hour. LHD cars usually measure the speed in kph, some indicate both kph and mph.
5 Take a little test drive in your LHD before you venture out onto the roads and when you finally take the plunge remember to keep right.
