Of course, in Sweden the switchover from driving on the left to driving on the right was easier, because for some weird reason people there drove LHD cars even in the days when they were driving on the left. So far as I can remember, trucks and buses were an exception. I remember being in Sweden a year or so before the switchover, and the buses had passenger doors on both the right AND the left.
