      You're right its a left hand drive. Right hand drive is the correct vehicle to use here, they maybe cheap but they are very durable.

    Okay, so when will the fire department, issue statement about investigating these fires. Almost every week one/two go up in flames. I think this should be an issue the govt need to address, before it's to late. It can lead to a deadly scene, if we have uncertified vechiles on the road with out the proper inpection. We have to upgrade laws to prevent old and unsafe automotive on the road. Get these unsafe vehicle off the road, someone can get trap and the worst can happen.
