In countries where traffic flows on the right, traffic signs are mostly on the left side of the road.

A. True

B. False

The question was posed to me by my school teacher while I was bunking the class.

The query is from Analysis of Rate of Road Work in section Analysis of Rates of Civil Engineering Drawing

The correct option is B. False

The explanation: In countries where traffic flows on the right, traffic signs are mostly on the right side of the road, roundabouts and traffic circles go counter-clockwise/anti-clockwise, and pedestrians crossing a two-way road should watch out for traffic from the left first. In countries where traffic flows on the left, the reverse is true.

About 33% of the world by population drive on the left and 67% keep right. By road distances, about 28% drive on the left, and 72% on the right, even though originally most traffic drove on the left worldwide.
