Good video, thanks for posting! I was tempted to post a goofy reply about his unsafe riding on the "wrong side of the road" throughout the video, but it got me thinking of a genuine (though not important to my life) question- In England, Australia, etc. where the driver sits in the right front seat of the vehicle, what is the foot pedal layout? Is the gas pedal below your right foot, or closer to the centerline of the vehicle, so you'd use your left foot to accelerate?
Since the vast majority of people are right-handed, this is why I believe the USA setup clearly makes much more sense (working the stick-shift with your right hand instead of your left, etc.)
Just curious.

The foot pedals are the same everywhere. Clutch on the left and brake on the right. It is actually surprisingly easy to make the switch to driving on the left in a right hand drive car. You still look out your driver's side window for oncoming traffic. My biggest issue was turning on the wipers when I wanted to signal a turn.
