Tips and tricks for driving in Edison Park
Driving in Edison Park, like much of the US, is largely straightforward, with wide lanes and simple road layouts. Cars are left-hand drive, so you’ll be driving on the right-hand side of the road. Unlike in the UK, you can overtake on both sides, which can be a little unnerving at first. Most American cars are automatic, so remember to request a stick shift if you would prefer one.
