My only experience switching sides is a week in Ireland (I'm from a right-side driving US).

I had no real problem. The closest I had to an incident was pulling out from a driveway onto a road (it would be the same from any stop sign). Right-side drivers are trained to first look left, then right, because the people coming on the left are closer to you. When you switch side, you have to remember to look the other way first -- nearly got hit by a car coming "out of nowhere" from the right once.

The good news is that if you drive a manual transmission, you get to shift with you right hand.
Truth,

James
