In most countries today, right-hand driving is observed. However, about 35% of the population in the world still observes left-hand driving. There is actually a reason for this. Although, in most countries, left-hand driving is no longer applicable, those who live in a left-hand drive country need to know some facts about it to fully understand this driving option.
It was this way in the past mainly because of sensible reasons. Before, it was very dangerous to travel and drive in major roads because of feudal and violent societies and driving on the left seems to be a very smart choice to avoid accidents and any unfortunate incidents that may happen.
Today, however, these conditions are no longer happening. Hence, most countries prefer to drive on the right simple because it is a more comfortable choice. Some countries who are still driving on the left, however, find it a challenge to change things the way they were but would rather opt to remain a left-hand drive country.
