Countries that Drive on the Left

Around 30% of the world’s countries drive on the left with a little under 34% of the world’s people population driving on the left.

Centuries ago, almost all counties travelled on the left-side of the road. Countries that still drive on the left usually use right-hand drive vehicles. Vehicles on roundabouts travel in a clockwise direction and right-turning vehicles must give-way to oncoming traffic. The majority of countries that still drive on the left are mostly old British colonies.

The map below details countries that use right-hand drive vehicles and the list below details countries that drive on the left and may be of use if you are visiting a country and intend on driving.
