Its 0450am, Sunday 3rd of September 1967. It’s a quite night on the roads, a little cold but clear skies. Drivers all
around Sweden have just stopped their vehicles, looked and put on their indicators to turn right. They are not
turning right for a junction, they are all moving their cars, trucks and buses to the right hand side of the road. The
Swedish government sited such reasons for the named ‘H Day’ changing side of the road plan as reducing car
crashes, ease of movement as all neighbouring land countries drive on the right with over 5 million vehicles crossing
over per year, embracing logic as most cars in Sweden are already left hand drive anyway and as a result a major
reason for collisions was left hand drives overtaking from the left. The monumental change was rejected by 83% of
the 7.6million population in a referendum.
