Before this morning, if you'd asked me for one fact about Samoa I would have told you that it's a country that's pretty handy at rugby.
But if you'd asked me to follow that up with a second piece of info I would have been struggling.
The logic behind the decision is simple: many Samoans expats live in Australia and New Zealand, both right-hand drive markets, so switching sides will make it easier for them to import secondhand cars.
Many locals - especially those with left-hand drive cars - are less keen. They've even set up a protest group called PASS - People Against Switching Sides.
