Did you “wake up” on the right side today?

It was called “Dagen H” day.  Finland and Norway were already there…  “There” was driving on the “right” side of the road.  Time for Sweden to change and join them.  86% of the country voted against it…even though traffic accidents more then doubled in 10 years.  But the Swedes committed, made it their business and woke up to right-side-of-the-road driving and about 360 thousand street signs  in 1967 in ONE DAY.   And accidents?  They went down.

The hard part of change is not the change; it’s wanting to.
