Some countries drive on the right hand side, others drive on the left. But have you ever wondered why? It isn’t arbitrary- there are concrete reasons and a documented history for why we drive the way we do. Join Nolan Sykes as he explores the history and traditions of driving on the left and the right. It turns out, it has very little to do with cars.

Archaeologists found a Roman quarry in Swindon, England dating back to 100 A.D. Ruts in the road leading away from the quarry were deeper than the ones leading to it, because of the heavier loads in the carts. These deeper ruts were on the left!

WheelHouse answers all the questions about the automotive world you never thought to ask. Nolan Sykes looks at the history, sociology and psychology behind the cars you love, and the features you might overlook.
