Re: what percentage of the world drives on the left side of the road

Ummm, let me think of the places i have been....

Of course the U.S. is the right side...

Singapore - Left
Indonesia - Left
Malaysia - Left
Brazil - Right

I went to Paris and London during the same week and i can't remember which is which...but i think Paris - Left and London - Right. If not, then it is vice-versa. I cant remember about Amsterdam either (for obvious reasons ) but i think they drive on the Left also.

Re: what percentage of the world drives on the left side of the road

When you say "world" do you mean # of countries or population?
Here is the info on the later

Population distribution
As it turns out, some 4 billion people drive right, and 2 billion drive left (when they drive at all, that is). So roughly a third of the world drives on the left.
