Just wondering

When your driving a car with the steering wheel on the right hand side of the car are the pedals also reversed? I was just thinking how weird it would be to shift with the opposite hand.

It would seem normal if its the first car you've driven. It would probably take some getting used to for someone whos always driven the left hand drive standard cars.
