The Difficulty of Change

And I thought President Obama had it tough:

Samoa is about to become what’s believed to be the first nation since the 1970s to order its drivers to switch from one side of the road to the other. That’s spawned an islandwide case of road rage. Opponents have organized two of the biggest protests in Samoan history, and a new activist group — People Against Switching Sides, or PASS — has geared up to fight the plan.
