    consider this: In sweden in the 60s (i think?) the government decided to switch from driving on the left to driving on the right. So they just declared a special day when the whole country should start driving on the other side of the road.

    In iraq there is no street lights. If there is traffic people just swerve in to on coming traffic. Nobody honks or anything. It's like mad max

    its only the "wrong side" if you are driving a vehicle with the wheel on the right hand side. If you're driving on the left-hand side of the vehicle then driving on the left would increase the risk of accidents because of reduced visibility when attempting to pass

    I'm not sure I was there in 04 during all the bullshit. I didn't see any lights or signs telling u to yield and shit. only signs I saw were how far away cities were. Doubt they had any prior

    We almost single-handedly stand up to the world's bad guys while the countries we are trying to protect hate us for doing it.

    Crazy, right?

    It's hard enough when in those countries to remember to look in the correct direction when crossing the street!
