If you’re driving an automatic transmission, it should be easy enough to adjust.JR8 wrote:When I lived in the States and other places that drive on the ‘wrong side’ of the road, IME it takes a week or two to adjust. When you go to the car, you might initially approach the wrong front door, it’s a kind of auto-pilot and wears off pretty quickly. Stick a post-it note on the windscreen interior with an arrow ‘Drive this side!’.
In the US you may be used to being able to turn right (after a stop) on red or to make a u-turn at intersections, unless there is a sign prohibiting it.JR8 wrote: IME the trickiest thing can be getting grips with laws that are specific to that country, like turning-lanes at junctions, or what is it that’s legal in parts of the US turning right [or left!?] on a red traffic-light... Get a copy of the SGn highway code which will highlight any such local quirks to look out for.
