Drivers in Samoa are being given a chance to practise driving on the left hand side of the road.

Samoa's Transport Control Board has called for all drivers in the country to participate in driver training this week.

The roads within the sports complex at Tuana'imato, where the last Pacific Games were held, will be used for the training, with drivers to use their own vehicles.

There have been fears expressed over safety after the Transport

Control Board changed all road markings at the sports complex ready for training, without informing the public.
