      Is driving a right-hand drive car illegal in USA

      Often enough I see RHD cars here in Seattle. Some people here convert their USDM cars to RHD. Do they still pass inspection like that? Is it legal to drive RHD here?
      I got this article here https://drivingpress.com/can-you-dri...ar-in-the-usa/ and curious abut that .
      I'm sure I can check the DMV or something but I figured to ask this here first.

      I have seen a lot of US based RHD JDM cars in youtube videos, so I'm guessing it's legal to own and drive there.

      It seems quite stupid to swap a LHD car to RHD in a left hand traffic country, anyways...
