directions on ANY car right left clockwise etc
by: Anonymous

RUEL: ALL such directions should be stated from the position of a driver in the driver seat facing forward. There is ONLY one left side of a car, ONLY one right side. It does not change when you stand in front looking back.and should never be stated in that way. Thus there is only ONE clockwise and counter clock..again from point of view of driver in the seat. This is automotive engineering..and if everyone will just state it the same way it will end a lot of confusion.
