On September 3, 1967, Sweden switched from driving on the left side of the road to the right, and this day in history is now called Högertrafikomläggningen or Dagen H (H Day) which means “The right-hand traffic diversion.” People were still confused and had to take some time to acclimate to the switch as you can tell from the photo. It was the largest logistical event in Sweden’s history.
