Left-hand or right-hand driving?

In Germany, we drive on the right side of the road. We call that “Rechtsverkehr” (“right side traffic”). My English dictionary translates it as “right-hand driving”, or “right-hand traffic”. Apart from the UK (which is anyways an island), we Europeans drive on the right side of the road. Interesting experiences, like crossing the border from Thailand to Laos (and changing the side on which you drive) cannot be made in Europe, as you go to the UK either by ship or train. An interesting statistical effect appears when drivers in a vehicle they are used to (e.g., Germans in a vehicle with the steering on the left) drive in countries where you drive on the other side. Your risk of being involved in a serious accident is much lower! Who would have thought that. So, you know that some countries drive on the right side. Some on the left side....
