In India, vehicles are right-hand drive (that is, the driver seat is on the right side of vehicle) and the vehicle should be driven on left side of the road.

Is there any European country that follows the same driving style?

    @Mawg the question concerns European countries, not European Union countries. (Also, Ireland will remain in the EU and will no doubt continue to drive on the left side of the road.) – phoog Mar 14 '17 at 22:58

According to the relevant Wikipedia page, the following European countries have left-hand traffic:

  • Cyprus
  • Guernsey (Crown dependency of the United Kingdom)
  • Ireland
  • Isle of Man (Crown dependency of the United Kingdom)
  • Jersey (Crown dependency of the United Kingdom)
  • Malta
  • United Kingdom

    Sweden also had left-hand traffic until 3 September 1967, when everyone switched to the other side of the road: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagen_H – Matthias Fripp Mar 14 '17 at 9:10

    @mfripp Many other countries did. Czechia switched on the day of German occupation in 1939. (It was scheduled to some later date.) – Vladimir F Mar 14 '17 at 9:35

    An addition to this answer: no for mainland Europe, as all the mentioned territories are island (which had much less of a reason to align with neighboring countries) – Jasper Mar 14 '17 at 9:50

Yes, United Kingdom :)

This was pretty straight forward, isn't it?

The long answer is : UK, Ireland, Malta and Cyprus.

  • +1. Only UK? Remaining all are LHD? – i-- Mar 14 '17 at 8:55

    The others have shared borders - border crossings would be MUCH more interesting if they didn't all drive on the same side... – Brian Drummond Mar 14 '17 at 9:23
  • @BrianDrummond which shared borders does Eire have with LHD countries? – MD-Tech Mar 14 '17 at 9:26

    @MD-Tech That's probably why Ireland's on the list along with the UK. – Brian Drummond Mar 14 '17 at 9:28

    @MD-Tech - Eire shares a border with Northern Ireland, which I part of the UK. – AndyT Mar 14 '17 at 9:30
