    Aw, go on! Do it! Get started on the motorway or a “B” road in the country. Don’t start out on the South Circular.

    Hah! Maybe next time. I’d hate to be the cause of Perry having to explain to his wife that I wrecked her car because I forgot what side of the road I was supposed to be on!

    erm the “shift box” or gear stick is in the middle. its the steering wheel thats on the other side , duh

  4. Dave2 says:

    If you sit in the driver’s seat in the US… the shift box is on your right. When I sat in the driver’s seat in the UK… the shift box was on my left. To a Yank like me… that’s the “wrong” side.

    I guess it’s all a matter of perspective? 🙂
