Which side of the road do they drive on?

Which side of the road do they drive on? "… an attempt to list which side of the road people drive on around the world, and to find some reasons why."

Quite fascinating actually. Unsuprisingly much is defined by the Brits and the French, but the page goes into much more detail, and picks out some very interesting bits and pieces. I also didn’t realise that in many countries there is a lane discipline for pedestrians – apparantly we British are quite good at seemingly random walking movements, using eye contact and gestures to keep us from bashing into each other. In many other countries however, there is an implicit (and sometimes explicit) convention for walking to the left or right.
