    Question preposition

    Good daY!

    i read from a Grammar book that states

    ' IN Britain they drive on the left.'

    WHat does this mean? If I"m not mistaken in BRitain the driver's seat is located on the right side.
    Thus,dOes the sentence mean drivers in BRitain always drive to the left direction?
    If so,what is a clear way of expressing how the British differ from other countries when it comes to the manner of driving because of the structure of its cars?

    thank you so much!
    have a stressfree day!
