Steering rack system tells you quietly: the Chinese car is right

In China, whether driving or walking, we are habitually leaning to the right side of the forward direction. What is the source of this accustomed criterion? Why do some countries drive to the left and China to the right?

Among the 6 billion people in the world, about 4 billion "rightists" on the right and 2 billion on the left. The "rightists" are mostly typical continental countries, such as the United States, China, Russia, Germany, France, etc.; the "leftists" are mostly typical island countries and peninsula countries: Britain, Japan, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

It is interesting to say that most countries in the world have to rely on Napoleon for the reason of driving right. Before the French Revolution, the carriages of the French aristocracy were also used to the left. Therefore, in the eyes of the under-pressed people, “left-handedness” means nobility and privilege, while “right-wing” has the meaning of “revolution”. . So, the French Revolution, the vehicle went right.

After Napoleon came to power, he launched a war to conquer Europe. Where the French occupied it, the rule of the right line was brought there. Similarly, the United Kingdom has brought its own left-handed norms to its vast colonies, such as India, Pakistan, Singapore, Australia, South Africa, etc., and will unswervingly follow the "Left" route.

Why is the car in mainland China on the right? Originally, there were very few private cars in China, and the driving system was made in the UK, and the car was on the left. However, during the war of resistance, Jiang Gong and the United States slowly contacted the purchase of vehicles. Most of China’s cars were imported by the United States. The US road traffic rules were driven to the right. After the US vehicles arrived in China, Chiang Kai-shek redefined China’s driving rules. American way - drive to the right.

At this point, the norms of the right line have been unified in mainland China, and this method has continued since our party took office, until today.

"Please comrades unify the right line!"
