Seth has two rules in his car: everyone has to be nice to each other, and no eating.

Wonder how many people will be thrown off by the driver’s seat being on the right. Gonna be honest, I’ve seen so much American TV, I almost put the steering wheel on the left instead, out of instinct.

Does Seth's nice car have no air conditioner? I mean, everyone is sweating like heck in there!

Nah, his car just has those rubbish blowers that just shoot the hot air into your car - they do work sometimes, but not during very hot weather!

I'm actually pretty conditioned to the mirrored driving conditions our nations share. I was more surprised when I realized Murdoch was driving on the left in 19-2000.

It could just be me that gets mixed up! Doesn't take much!

There have been accidents caused by Usanians (and no doubt others) who can't handle staying on the left hand path.

Seth laying down the law, and Gemma isn't using the power of boobs to get the law changed? Then again, it's a bad idea to annoy your driver if you like living, people drive better when not infuriated.

Also: Poor Karen, unless she likes watching that kind of thing for two hours at a go.

Out of... instinct? I guess I can see it since you haven't drawn too many car scenes for the comic since the warning of Jon's... driving skill.

Gemma knows flashing the driver would probably result in death, so she's just going to let him have this one

I don't drive (yet?), which might also be a factor in my inability to remember where the steering wheel should be

In the right parts of London one wouldn't want or need to drive for much at all, I suppose. Thank you for not making global warming that much worse then?

Sadly I am planning on getting a car, but only using it for occasional long trips--you won't catch me driving to and from work every day when public transport drops me off at the door!

Oh, the wonders of air conditioning. A must in the American South, not so much anywhere else.

That being said, why don't they just roll down the windows?

A fair number of newer cars here have AC (which is more than can be said of most houses in England, oof), but Seth's car is second-hand and kinda old so he must sweat.

They could roll the windows down, but in my experience:
a) it doesn't cool the car down THAT much if it's a really hot day
b) the wind whipping in the windows is really loud so you can't hear everyone being nice to each other in the car

One of the best and worst cars I ever had was a 1978 Mercedes Benz (obviously second hand). Diesel engine so fabulous gas mileage. That said, it was painted dark blue and had no A/C. And it had vinyl seats.
