The British and all their minions drive on the left side of the road, and we and the rest of the world drive on the right side of the road. Who is right. How did it start. Why one side or another. Who was first. Did the Ancient romans drive their chariots on the right or the left. Did horse and buggys use the left side in Dickens day, or just cars. Whats the story. Who was first and why did the other change.
