Latvian National Highways (LVC) should be especially careful on Knowledge Day, September 1, when driving in densely populated areas or near schools.
LVC reminds us that there is also active repair work on the Vidzeme, Jelgava, Bauska and Ventspils highways in Piriga.
Expect more intensive road traffic in the morning. Motorists are advised to plan their trip in advance.
With the start of the new school year, motorists have to deal with increased road traffic within residential areas. This is why you should be extra careful, bearing in mind that you may spend more time on the road compared to summer.
Motorists also need to be mindful of increased pedestrian traffic, with more children and young people walking, biking or riding electric scooters to school.
Motorists should be especially careful on the first day of the new school year when road and pedestrian traffic is usually changing.
LVC urges drivers to adhere to speed limits and slow down near educational institutions and to be careful near crosswalks and signalized sections.
