Samoa road switch to go ahead

6:10 pm on 2 September 2009

A final attempt at delaying a switch to driving on the left instead of the right side of the road in Samoa has failed.

After a special Cabinet meeting called to hear public concerns, the Samoan Government has confirmed the switch will come into force from Monday.

Earlier this week, a court upheld the government's decision to make the change to be better aligned with Australian and New Zealand driving regulations.
