The UL I heard was that driving on right was a French thing, but it was because of being in horse drawn carriages, the driver sat to the left- and therefore drove on the right side of the road- so he could use his right hand to control the horse reins.

Sword in right hand = ride on left side of road.
Reins in right hand = ride on right side of road.

The presumption being you sit closest to the center of the road unless you are delivering mail.
