It's not natural driving on the other side of the road...we did it in Bermuda, on a small moped and you really don't want to forget which side of the road to drive on, on a moped. doom.jpg

I have to say I'm pretty worried sometimes at how some people drive nowadays... Especially when I'm the passenger aaah2.gif

Well, I have taken to staying in the fast lane and I either speed ahead of the mob, or become a part of the mob...either way I think it's safer than being in the other two lanes.

I'd absolutely love to do road trips in Britain, even with their wrong side of the road driving thingie.

All my UK friends refuse to drive whilst here, I would afford them the same courtesy. uhoh.gif
I know where they are coming from, I flew into London and had a two hour bus ride from Heathrow to Gatwick transfer.
I realized I couldn't drive there at all.

Dayum. This thread is visually better than the Mexican thread, but my coffee is still sloshing a bit.

Odd thing is the truck that wound up running over the car barely registered the impact...yet the driver of the car lived (if you can call what the rehab she's enduring living).

I prefer driving the F350 in winter.

it's entirely different driving up here...all the country roads have a speed limit of 55 mph so drivers travel 70 mph blink.gif
