Warning about icy roads throughout Latvia

This week, changing weather is forecast throughout Latvia, which means roads can be icy, Latvian State Roads said November 10, urging drivers to be careful and to take into account that road conditions are changing rapidly and unevenly.

Black ice may also form, especially on bridges, overpasses, wooded areas, and near bodies of water. 

Forecasts show that air temperatures will drop across the country during the weekend and early next week, and there may also be snow in places, so it is particularly important to already equip cars with winter tyres without waiting for December 1 when winter tyres will be mandatory, said Latvian State Roads.

It is also important to check whether lights and windshields are in good condition to ensure visibility in the dark.
