What side of the road do people drive on in Mongolia?

In most countries, this would be a relatively simple question. In Mongolia, it's more complicated than right or left.

Mongolians do drive on the right side of the wheel as we do in the states, but......some of their steering wheels are on the left, some are on the right. That's because a full 90 percent of cars in Mongolia are bought second-hand, and they are bought second-hand from all over, including countries that drive on the left side of the road. This is only one of the many many reasons that sitting in a car in Mongolia or trying to cross the street are dangerous enterprises.
