The practice of driving on the left existed even before cars were invented. This practice can be dated back to ancient Rome

There are often stories that say that since Napoleon was left-handed, he preferred to ride his horses on the right side of the road so that his left hand could use the sword more easily

However, there is no documentary evidence to prove that it was Napoleon who started the custom of driving to the right in France

Driving on the right started in the USA to avoid wagons from hitting each other. The wagons didn't have a driver's seat

This rule of keeping to the left was later incorporated into the Highway Act of 1835 and was adopted by all of Britain's colonies

In the 18th century, a law was passed in England to make all traffic on London Bridge keep to the left in order to avoid collisions
