You drive with ? Right,Left ,Both, None..... and why?

I,ll start, Drive with Left hand.Because farm equipment requires the right to operate things like pto and lift. Manual trans must be shifted when Drag racing,ect.

Google is yer friend.



Both and w/white knuckles in the crazy high speed traffic where you may encounter some fool on an electric scooter or another reading a news paper or betting sheet w/both hands or perhaps just a piece of legislation so they could see whot was init.

Too, smart fones have made a lot of leaden-eyed dummies these dayz.

Beware the maroons! They are out there, eagerly awaiting your entry into their food chain.

I had to Google that to find that I swerve with the left hand, because blinkers are for amateurs

I've been on the road 37 years. Hands are for hamburgers. I use my knees.

I use the one attached to the arm that is attached to the shoulder that hurts the least. When that shoulder gets to hurting more than the other I switch hands. I haven't had anything with a stick shift since '86 except my tractor. Wish I would have gone hydrostatic with it like I did with my lawnmowers.

Well dang where's your sense of adventure the young man in the white Toyota 4 Runner today coming home from Greensboro wasn't using either hand as he was texting away like mad, might have been using his knees but the rest of us were giving him a pretty wide berth as he was using the middle of two lanes.

Usually the left, right hand is for shifting gears! Also for making evil hand gestures when approaching road rage levels.

Auto trans - either hand; both when the wind is gusting. Manual trans - left hand on the wheel, right on the stick.

When I'm in Stockton, it depends on whether I'm returning fire out the driver or passenger side window.

There was a video last year taken by a Las Vegas police officer's body cam - he was in pursuit returning fire thru his windshield.

I drive with my left hand because our old flat bed would pop out of gear and required you to hold the stick.

It would really feel weird driving a vehicle with the steering wheel on the right like in Britain. Steering with the right might not be so odd, but shifting gears with the left would take some getting used to.

You adapt faster than you'd think, we rented a "van" in London and drove to Edinburgh and later to Glasgow, right hand drive and stick shift.

Left. Manual transmission, city driving = lots of shifting with right hand.
