Saturday night and Sunday morning saw nearly 1,200 curfew violators in Latvia

On the night from Saturday to Sunday, January 31, State Police caught 1,189 curfew breakers, according to a statement by the police.

Police checked 4,792 persons during the night, of whom 3,603 had a valid reason to be outside. 400 administrative infringement cases were initiated.

Among those, penalties of as much as EUR 1,000 were also imposed, for instance, on people who were out driving a car past 22:00, all from different households and behaving aggressively.

Nine curfew breakers were caught driving under the influence, one without a license.

Next weekend is currently set as the final curfew weekend in Latvia, but that is still subject to change.
