What defines the difference between the two groups?

Group 1

USA, China, Netherlands, Uruguay, Cuba


Group 2

England, Japan, Ireland, Suriname, Jamaica



I recommend that the best approach to this puzzle is to take single shots straight at the bull (to get the answer in one).

If you are certain that you know the answer, please email first - thanks.

Yes (but what happened to single shots - get the answer in one) :)

I just thought - by "customs" I was assuming you meant customs & excise as in import duties

I already know the answer! Transportation is relevant, isn't it? :)

No, no. Group 2 drive on the right side of the road, and group 1 drive on the wrong side.
