The Roadside Debate

Road Accidents in Regards to Left and Right-hand Sided Driving

An auto collision can occur anywhere and anytime. While there is no such thing as absolute safety while on the road, there are simple steps you can take to minimize your risk of becoming a statistic. This includes small precautions that you should be doing anyways, such as giving your full attention to driving and being cognizant of road conditions and other motorists.

There is also a discussion whether driving on the left or right-hand side of the road contributes to more accidents. Currently, 166 countries drive on the right side, compared to 74 that drive on the left. According to statistics, there are a greater number of road fatalities linked to countries that drive on the right side. However, there is no evidence to suggest that any of the accidents are in any way linked to driving on the right side. Most collisions are attributed to distracted driving, such as texting or driving while under the influence. Underestimating road conditions and mechanical failure are also common causes.
