    When we were in France, I was driving and I came to a bend, the camber (my excuse) was wrong and it was a right hand bend, I realised that the 'centre of gravity' for a right hand drive on a left hand road is all wrong and its so easy to lose it, anyone else found teh same?

    As the driving position is normally in the middle of the road more care should be taken...

    Sounds like a case of drunken driving to me :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I have never noticed anything to be honest.

    Its always felt natural to me.

    My problem is driving left hand drive cars , especially reversing as I keep looking over my left shoulder:Doh:

    I've not noticed any problem ...... In your case in must be due to weight overload on the driver side :Wink:

    I have over 100k miles in Left hookers in this country and not really noticed the camber thing. Maybe we just get used to it quickly.

    What ever it is you're on - take a bit more water with it!

    Now this is a heck of a French bend to get around ..................
