Re: Hire cars are a mixed blessing
Would that have been going from RHD to LHD? I think the intent is to have the indicators on the side away from the gear lever so you can control both at the same time.
That was a common issue, very visible with Japanese and Korean cars, countries where they also drive on the left. My Mum's Hyundai used to catch me out like that, it had things the "right" way round for the UK. Most European cars had it reversed, but they all seem to have standardized on the LHD pattern now.
