Right Hand Traffic

Forty years ago today, Sweden changed from left hand traffic to right hand traffic. By doing so, we left Britain and Ireland as the only European countries to drive on the left side of the road. It was a good thing, considering the long border with Norway, where they already drove on the right side. Mum think it is a good thing, she did not have to learn new traffic rules when she moved from America, where they also drive on the right side. The downside is that we do not drive on the same side as in the Shiba Inu home country Japan, where there is left hand traffic.
