That is not only true in Briain, the entire Europe too. In fact, in many places outside of the US, manual transmission is most popular.

To save fuel mainly, among a few other reasons. You might think gas is high here in the US, but wait until you fill the pump in Europe.

Europeans drive cars; Americans ride in them. Often while eating or using a phone, not that no other culture does that.
