samoans switch lanes

samoa has officially changed to driving on the left (like south pacific neighbors australia & new zealand)

[T]he Samoan government introduced the change to end its reliance on expensive, left-hand drive imports from America.

It hopes that Samoan expatriates in Australia and New Zealand will now ship used, more affordable vehicles back to their homeland.

To minimise the chaos, a two-day national holiday has been declared to keep cars off the road, and prayers have been said at the country’s churches in the hope of blessing the changeover.

almost seems like a fake news story, but apparently not.
