Kazakhstan has decided not to ban the presence of right-hand drive cars on its roads after all. Rather, future imports of RHD vehicles will be restricted. The government reversed its intention take the vehicles — largely imported JDM models — off the nation's highways and byways due to the massive upsetitude of many citizens of the nation. Officials still maintain that the RHD cars on Kazakh roads are dangerous, but with an election looming, we assume the incumbents didn't want to inconvienence the populace too much.
