Countries Where They Drive on the Left - List By Area

Here's a list of countries drive on the left hand side of the road. I know that England, Australia, and Hong Kong do, but can never remember some of the others.

This might also be considered a list of countries where you will never find me behind the wheel :-) as I am so used to driving on the right hand side of the road, I'd be dangerous!

Here's the list for handy reference for one and all:

Africa :: Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe
Americas :: Bermuda, Falklland Islands, Guyana, Suriname, St. Helena
Asia :: Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, East Timor, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand
Caribbean :: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, British Virgin Iislands, U.S. Virgin Islands
Europe :: Cyprus, Guernsey, Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Malta, United Kingdom
Oceania :: Australia, Christmas Island, Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, New Zealand, Norfolk Island, Pitcairn Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau,Tonga, Tuvalu

Please let me know of any other countries where they drive on the left, and I will add them to this list.

Hi Karen,

Great list and great idea! Thanks for posting this ...

I was wondering ... would it have been a shorter list for countries where you drive on the 'right' side of the road?

Hi Teena!

Well, according to Wikipedia, there are 243 'countries', so I took the easy way out.

(That includes the Vatican, and I know I'd never drive there, either, and the populace is immeasureably safer)

Cheers back!
