In order to improve driving conditions, 200 winter technical units are involved in road maintenance work. The country's main roads must be cleared from snow within three hours after the end of snowfall, whereas roads of less traffic are given up to 24 hours.
“Latvian State Roads” reminded drivers to be particularly careful when choosing the speed and the distance from other drivers. You can inform the maintenance company about issues on the road network by calling the free informational phone 80005555, on the homepage of the “Latvian State Roads” at www.lvceli.lv and in the “Waze” application.
As of the next day, December 1, winter tires are mandatory on all vehicles but it is strongly recommended that they are set up today if it is not already done.
