On the other side of the road? I'm used to it as I travel there frequently but my wife couldn't handle it. I took the keys back after she went around the rotary sorry roundabout the wrong way.....

While I've been to the UK a few times, I've never attempted to drive, particularly in London. What do all those weird paint squiggles on the road mean, anyway?

Most drivers who are attentive and can handle a car will do fine in England. Scared drivers, drivers who drive too slowly, drivers who take too many risks, and drivers who don't pay attention should take a bus.

Not in England, but I have some in the Caribbean Islands where they drive on the other side of the road. The Rotary is the most challenging part.

I have not driven in the UK, but for 2 years I drove on the left in Tokyo. Not a big deal.

Yep, shore have, in fact I lived over there for 2 years back in the 60s. I had a 1956 Ford Poplar car that couldn't get out of its on way. I was in London with it and a Renault passed me and shifted gears in the process.
