The authorities in Samoa are giving demonstrations over how vehicles need to undertake switching sides of the road tonight

Samoa is switching from driving on the right hand side of the road to the left from tomorrow morning.

Sara Vui-Talitu reports from Apia.

"Media will be covering the demonstrations by fire and emergency crews in the hope that drivers will know exactly what to do tomorrow. Broadcasters will be informing people of the switch in the early hours of the morning, and make the official announcement as to when people on the road will have to stop and then move on to driving on the other side of the road. Drivers and people will also be given constant reminders about driving safe during the two day public holiday and adhering to the lower speed limit. In Apia,"
