During spring and summer, maximum speeds of 100 km/h were allowed on stretches of the country's main roads. However, from Friday, October 6, motorists will no longer be able to drive at more than 90 km/h.
The higher speed limits during the summer had applied to the following road sections:
- on the Tallinn highway (A1) at the Saulkrasti bypass road, as well as from Jelgavkrasti to Svetciems;
- Vidzeme highway (A2) from the Riga ring road to the end of the resurfaced section (25 km);
- Daugavpils highway (A6) from Salaspils to Ikskile and from Nīcgale to Daugavpils bypass;
- Jelgava highway (A8) from the border of Riga to the Jelgava bypass;
- separate stages on the motorway Jēkabpils-Rezekne (A12).
