    These stupied left hand vehicle is for the US roads. We do not drive on the right in this country. We need to correct this problem and import right handed vehicle only. I keep saying this a longtime now.

      Your comnent is baseless. We have been using left hand drive vehicle for years now. Only of late; we have seen the importation of a high volume of right hand drive vehicles. Simply because they are cheaper. With right hand or left hand drive vehicles accidents will still happen if motorist do what they suppose to do and not do. That is simple drive with due care and attention on the roads. Road safety is a must. Sadly; some just don't care or can't drive.

    Hodgie is correct. We use the British road standards here. So driving right handed vehicle is correct. Just incase the younger folks didn't know. Right hand vehicle were the first set of vehicles here on island.

    Let's all be real and talk about the real problems here. Roads are too dark, roads themselves are too bad and people aren't taking their time. Another thing that has nothing to do with this is, we need lights above every crosswalk on both side of the road!
