Up to the late 1700's, EVERYONE travelled on the left side of the road because it's the sensible option for feudal, violent societies of mostly right-handed people.

It is mostly old brithish colonies that still drive on the left, so yes, we drive on the CORRECT side, like i said earlier, its you lot that is wrong Smile hahaha

Why do the English drive on the "wrong" side of the road ?

Well it's one of those trivia questions that can really nag at you until you find an answer, I did some research and discovered the following:

In days of old logic dictated that when people passed each other on the road they should be in the best possible position to use their sword to protect themselves. As most people are right handed they therefore keep to their left. This practice was formalised in a Papal Edict by Pope Benefice around 1300AD who told all his pilgrims to keep to the left.

Nothing much changed until 1773 when an increase in horse traffic forced the UK Government to introduce the General Highways Act of 1773 which contained a keep left recommendation. This became a law as part of the Highways Bill in 1835.

Reasons to travel on the right are less clear but the generally accepted version of history is as follows: The French, being Catholics, followed Pope Boneface's edict but in the build up to the French Revolution in 1790 the French Aristocracy drove their carriages at great speed on the left hand side of the road, forcing the peasantry over to the right side for their own safety. Come the Revolution, instincts of self preservation resulted in the remains of the Aristocracy joining the peasants on the right hand side of the road. The first official record of this was a keep right rule introduced in Paris in 1794



so there you have it malty, the right side of the road is for the peasants.

yes, but we established that the left side was first, more to the point, why would the right side be considered 'right' or better? I would have thought it made sense to shift gear with your left hand, as this means most would maintain control with their main (right) hand. Maybe that's why we are better drivers *shrug* . (we have 10 fia formula 1 world championship winners to back this up) tongue (note that right sided drivers generally prefer to just race round in a big circle ala indy/nascar)

Obviously Sweden and Canada drive on the right, as by 1985 when the first Swedes and Canadians learned to drive 'horseless carriages' rather than ride a moose or reindeer, everyone else in mainland Europe and North America already drove on the right tongue

Me and Malty are right because we are English and the English are always right Dodge

Thought it was because when people that drove a wagon they could whip the horses with their right hands and watch to make sure that the wheels didn't touch the passing wagons. Think driving on the right started because napoleon. He started to conquer new countries he forced his rightism, although not sure its been awhile since I was in school. Probably why the brits dislike the french. Anyways right is better, newer and tech always gets better.

Both the Russia-Czech & Canada-USA where good games!
Sweden didn't have much problem with Finland and beat them with 3-0 ...
The rest of the games should be interesting to follow.
