It's not an issue I've had both in a variety of vehicles being in the UK a leftie may seem like a problem but I soon got used to changing gear with the wrong hand & apart from one a toll both its no issue, I can always walk in to Maccy D's to pick up my bag of death.

on the practical side the insurance is slightly more expensive & some parts were more expensive or harder though not impossible to obtain.

regards
Gren

My wife and I recently bought a LHD 90 in FL. We were shopping for something RHD just because we are anarchists. Bought the LHD because it was otherwise near perfect and we were tired of looking.

We see only 2 real issues with RHD in the U.S. Toll booths if you don't have a passenger. And selling a RHD can be a challenge as not everyone is an anarchist.

Why do you need "Help!!!", you're not stuck by the side of the road or are you?

Most prefer driving on the side native to where they are...

For example:
USA, Canada, Mexico, continental Europe - LHD.
UK, ZA, Japan, Australis, NZ - RHD

I grew up switching back and forth, so it doesn't matter to me, personally.
My second daily driver was a RHD MGYB Saloon.

I will give you credit... I did read the post. But, why do you need to know whether we prefer LHD or RHD? Planning on importing trucks to sell to is?

Driven both styles on both types of road.

Despite experience roundabouts still take a special skill the first time I'm back in the UK.

LHD was invented so right handed people could smoke cigarettes and flick the ash in a center ashtray. Do you smoke?
