Main article: Dagen H
Sweden had legal left-hand traffic (vänstertrafik in Swedish) from approximately 1734, when it changed back from a short period of right-hand traffic starting in 1718. With or without legal rule, traditionally the left side was used for carriages. Finland, under Swedish rule until 1809, also drove on the left, and continued to do so as a Russian Grand Duchy until 1858.
This continued well into the 20th century, despite the fact that virtually all the cars on the road in Sweden were LHD. (One argument for this was that it was necessary to keep an eye on the edge of the road, something that was important on the narrow roads in use at the time). Also, Sweden's neighbours Norway and Finland already drove on the right, leading to confusion at border crossings.
In 1955 a referendum was held on the issue, resulting in an 82.9%-to-15.5% vote against a change to driving on the right. Nevertheless, in 1963 the Swedish parliament passed legislation ordering the switch to right-hand traffic. The changeover took place at 5am on Sunday, 3 September 1967, which was known in Swedish as Dagen H (H-Day), the 'H' being for Högertrafik or right traffic.
stupid stupid people!
people will always buy items consumed by number, by numbers. I have 12 guests, I need 12 eggs...
anyway, "Dozen" comes from the french "douzaine" douze = 12. so buying eggs by the "douzaine" is simply being euro in advance...
Is that question for real, when you buy an apple do you ask for 50grams or do you just buy an apple that is just weighed??? You ask for one egg obviously, which will then be weighed and then you'll be charged accordingly.. No reason as to why this won't work.. You'll even still be able to buy a dozen eggs but now you'd pay for what you're getting instead of an over inflated price for LARGE eggs even when the eggs are bordering on what could legally be described as large!!I only want one egg, what weight do I ask for?
i don't think they will start selling them individuallya lot of people living on thier own who don't want to buy a minimum of 6 eggs as they might use 1 a week
I don't see why not? a lot of shops will take this on to please their customers..i don't think they will start selling them individually
Egg boxes will stay egg box shaped, just the price will vary depending on the weight of the eggs and not the number of eggs
Made i chuckle that did
there is no reason why they couldn't already, no law to say eggs have to be sold in multiples of 6.I don't see why not? a lot of shops will take this on to please their customers..
