    Other very strange things about driving a right hand drive car – Your perception of space gets severely affected by having the A pillar to the right of your head, this means the rest of the car is now to your left and not to the right. It makes a small hatchback feel immense, I had some troubles adjusting my brain for the car's dimensions for the first few minutes.
    Manual transmission shifters are not modified for right hand driving (proving left hand drive is the "correct side" lol), so instead of having 1st and 2nd gear (the ones mostly used) closest to your leg, now they are further away from you. This feels exactly like whenever you engage 5th and 6th on a left hand drive car. So strange but quite an interesting experience 😄

    Here in Sweden, the actual VIN is etched (faintly) onto the plate. You have to look close to see it, but it's there. No stickers on windows.

    Imperial gallons = 4,546 L
    U.S. gallons = 3,785 L
    Just fully change to metric units, 1 L = 1000 ml in every single metric country.

    Actually Americans secretly use the metric system every single day without realizing it. It is very amusing 😄

    Come to Chicago – we have a fare share of average speed cameras around here 👍
    As a Brit living over here things I can’t ever get used to still (after 15 years):
    – complete lack of discipline when driving
    – nobody knows what an indicator is for
    – lack of any MOT type testing for cars (beyond the state SMOG test)
    – no amber (get ready), between red and green

    – A roads are bigger roads (they were the main roads before the motorway network was built), B roads are the smaller ones

    Driving on the wrong side? The mirrors!! My problem was looking at A pillar trying to look in the centre mirror, first day back at home is more scary.

    You didn't mention that UK fuel is higher octane, with a base of 95 and high of 99. I think I've read that some US states sell 87 with 92 being considered "premium".

    Drew Stearne made a mistake in his description of British Roads. A'Roads are major roads and B roads are minor roads

    Hmm. So in the UK they don't feel the need to send the men with guns just because you went over the speed limit. What a great idea. 😑

    so you both know in australia all buses that carry people have to be tested every year to make sure it is safe plus the drivers have to get medicals every year

    Count yourselves lucky you do not drive in Thailand. Its absolute chaos. Police do not enforce road rules. I seldom see speed checks or road radar. The new national police chief just banned most road checks as it fueled police corruption.😂 Thailand is in top 5 in world for accidents and raod deaths. Its saying something when you aout do Afghanistan etc for road deaths. The joke here is that most Thais have accidents because they fail to follow the rules of physics….😁

    I also hate the sticker thing in Ontario, Canada. It's such an archaic system.

    Great show guys.
    It it true that driving with the steering wheel on the left side in UK or steering wheel on the right side in US (or any other country) is the worst? I think that overtaking would be the most scary – because of no visibility. Is it really as dangerous as I think?

    We do have a version of the safety perception test. That's the safety class for insurance.

    In fact in small print EACH car is rated online by EPA in USA not only in miles per gallon of fuel efficiency but also in gallons consumed per 100 miles. Both ratings are printed on original sticker of a new car on a dealership car lot. People do not pay much attention to the second measurement since it is printed in small print but as was pointed in the video it is much more accurate and directly correlate with litres used per 100 km rating.
