I've been driving for about 15 yrs so I figure I'm pretty entrenched in my left hand drive ways. I realize that 99% of the time, driving is driving, but I'm still trying to prepare myself for doing certain things differently. A few difficulties I've already identified:
-Passing on single lane roads. Realize that this will be mostly impossible when driving solo. Not a big deal, I'm always willing to be late over risking safety. I've heard of people installing a second mirror so they can see oncoming traffic.
-Entering traffic from a parallel park. Tricky, but again patience and caution should make it ok. Luckily I live on a one-way street, so whenever possible I'll negate this issue by parking on the left side of the road.
-Drive thrus, but I never use them anyways, so a non-factor.
-Other toll booths/parking garage situations. Again, not a scenario I regularly encounter. I do take a lot of ferries, but it shouldn't be a problem to put in park and lean over to deal with the ticket booth employee.
Other situations I should keep in mind? Google mostly gave me reverse advice for adjusting to left hand driving, although I did find this blog
which was helpful, and emailing the blogger got me some specific advice on what to look out for when I'm looking at vehicles.
