Gda Music BS: driving on the wrong side of the road (66* d) RE: BS: driving on the wrong side of the road 19 Nov 14

Karachi, West Pakistan in the early 1950`s I remember there was a government traffic suggestion to possibly alter the country to a drive-on-the-right system. The idea soon failed however, for although us motorists could get used to that kind of change, the multitude of camels certainly could not and would not cooperate. There is that old saying "you can`t teach an old dog new tricks", well that sure applied to those 10s of thousands of working camels. 60 years on that city now holds 3 million motor vehicles and much fewer camels, all travelling in the same direction....still on the left.
