Why do most countries include Ghana drive on the left side of the road?

The reasons for this are not entirely certain, but some believe it arose as a matter of safety.

  • The majority of people are right-handed.
  • The bulk of countries that drive on the left are former British colonies including South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
  • Only four countries in Europe still drive on the left and they are all islands. They consist of the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Malta and Cyprus.
  • Approximately two-thirds of the global population drive on the right side of the street (Use Left Hand Drive). All in all, 163 countries and territories have right-hand drive traffic while vehicles use the left-side in 76 countries.

Ghana changed its traffic from left-hand to right-hand drive on August 4, 1974. The move in Ghana was initiated with the passing of NRCD 212 of 1973 by the Acheampong regime, two years after Nigeria had done so in April 1972.


Reason: Most former British Colonies decided to break ranks with the British Colonial Habit of driving the left lane.


Fact: Most Ghanaians leaving in the United Kingdom would like to send their fairly used cars to Ghana for continue use but they have to swap the steering before it can be used in Ghana.

  1. Swapping is very expensive and does not meet the International Road Worthy Motoring Certification.
  2. With BREXIT bringing a car from Europe to UK for re-export attracts UK import duty
  3. Travelling to Europe to physically inspect and buy a vehicle is a nightmare
