Until Sunday, September 3rd, 1967, driving was done on the left-hand side on roads in Sweden. The conversion to right-hand was done on a weekend at 5 p.m. All traffic stopped as people switched sides. This time and day were chosen to prevent accidents where drivers would have gotten up in the morning and been too sleepy to realize 'this' was the day of the changeover.

My Swedish teacher told us about this the other day. All the cars suddenly stopped, switched sides and slowly continued driving. Haha, traffic must've been hilarious the following days.

I'm guessing their steering wheels would have been on the right side of the car instead of the left. My guess is that most cars eventually switched sides to left sided steering wheels like cars over in the US. (Just a guess, though.)
