More information about Final Jeopardy:
Why do cars on the U.S. Virgin Islands drive on the left? It’s a remnant of how things were in the territory prior to the purchase of the territory from Denmark in 1917. As with many Caribbean islands, though, it makes for an awkward driving experience, as most cars in the territory are imported from the United States and thus have left-side steering columns.
