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.
