Driving conditions are bad, especially in Riga where several accidents accompanied by heavy snowfall have left some streets virtually undrivable.
Residents are advised to opt for using public transportation instead of driving. Motorists in Rīga can use public transportation for free if they carry their vehicle registration certificate with them.
