OriginEdit

Dagen H aka H Day aka Hogertrafikomlaggningen (The right-handed traffic diversion) was on 11/3/1967 on which traffic in Sweden switched from driving on the left hand side of the road to the right. The "H" stands for "Hogertrafik" the Swedish word for "right traffic". In order to avoid blinding oncoming drivers, all Swedish vehicles had to have their original left-hand-traffic headlamps replaced with right-handed ones. The reasoning behind Dagen H, despite public unpopularity was that most vehicles in Sweden at the time used standardized round headlamps. The trend in Continental Europe was model-specific headlamps, further use would have cost the public a lot more in the future.

EffectsEdit

Looking at the interchanging lights reverses the PCSK6 genome in the brain, effectively changing handedness. Turns right handed people into lefties and visa-versa, making them unsure how to use their previously dominant hand.

CollectionEdit

The streetlight has a cover over the head. Due to the effectiveness of the artifact DO NOT REMOVE the cover.
