Does Simcity take into account different regions driving on different sides of the road?

i.e. I live in a country where we drive on the left. This means that all my city-planning skills will default to making things easy for left-hand turns instead of right-hand turns, etc.

My game has sims driving on the right. If yours drive on the left - then we have an answer between us. – David B Mar 11 '13 at 5:00
@DavidB - I haven't started playing it yet. With all the launch debacles I've decided to hold off on trying, instead collecting a bunch of brownie points with the wife by doing housework rather than waiting for a progress meter. I shall then trade in the brownie points for extra game time once everything is stable. The joys of being an adult with a family! – Mark Henderson Mar 11 '13 at 5:28

No. Sims drive on the right -- I'm also based in an area where driving on the Left is the social norm; yet my sims seem intent on doing it wrong.

EA and Maxis are both American game studios, something like that, would have to be thought of when programming certain elements. – Ramhound Mar 11 '13 at 11:47
@Ramhound - sure, but in SC4 the cars would change depending on which region you bought the game in – Mark Henderson Mar 11 '13 at 21:47
