Samoa: the driving force for a new revolution

The Samoans are taking a pretty radical step of changing which side of the road (and car) they drive on. The reason for coming to the light side (that is, the left side of the road), is that there are many Samoans working in Australia and NZ who will now be able to send used cars home to their families.

Apparently 1/3 of the world drives on the left hand side of the road...I think more countries should follow Samoa's lead and start the switch. Apparently Sweden went to the dark side in 1967, and a few African nations in the 1970s. It's time for the world to come back to the light side...if only to make it easier for me to drive in other countries...
