Högertrafik day

Fifty years ago today, Sweden changed from driving on the left to driving on the right, an assimilation with the rest of the continent of Europe which Napoleon had failed to achieve. There is a film of the changeover on YouTube.

So thorough was the change that the makers of a 1950s-set series of whodunits were hard-pressed to find sufficient right-hand drive cars to populate the roads.
