This is a discussion on EURO console RHD? within the Focus RS Discussions forums, part of the Focus RS Forums category; I like driving either lhd or rhd, I'm what you call ambidextrous (or was it full of dexterous?). I appreciate both, I never worked for ...
I like driving either lhd or rhd, I'm what you call ambidextrous (or was it full of dexterous?). I appreciate both, I never worked for the post office btw.
Don't get me started with the measurements here, I personally prefer the metric system. It's easier to convert.

You know historically it started with riding/driving on the left side in England.
Why? So you could easily stop and shake hands with your mates coming the opposite way. Initially on horse back, then in a vehicle.
Hand shakes / greetings were always right handed.....
And to clear it up, as stated backwards was not a slur or insult, there is a RHD at my house too (is for postal reasons). As mentioned, the person I was talking with is in a LHD market as am I, so "backwards" just means backwards from the norm to us.

LHD vs RHD origins...
In the past, almost everybody traveled on the left side of the road because that was the most sensible option for feudal, violent societies. Most people are right-handed, thus swordsmen preferred to keep to the left in order to have their right arm nearer to an opponent and their scabbard further from him. Moreover, it reduced the chance of the scabbard (worn on the left) hitting other people. Following this logic...For most, I guess driving on the left and RHD its easier to do a drive by shooting accurately lol...no wonder those roos banned guns..."with your dommy hand, even a dingo could pop a cap in a Aboriginal...-- "all said in my best crocodile hunter voice"....crikey.
