I have heard these same stories! And here is one for you, the islands of Okinawa, which had been under Japanese control, were placed under United States administration after WWII, in 1951. In 1972, they reverted back to Japan. So on July 30th, the entire island had to go from driving on the right hand side of the road, to the left hand side! All of the signs, everything was changed on that one day! Not sure what they did about the steering wheels of the cars, but can you imagine the number of accidents, or near accidents, that must have happened??? I'll send you a picture of the sign they used to remind everyone of the date of change.
