Forecasters on June 19 made a good weather forecast. Therefore, most of the residents of Riga decided to go out of town in the morning. This led to a serious transport collapse. Numerous reports of traffic jams and congestion on almost all streets of the city testified to this.
Rīgas satiksme warns citizens about serious congestion and if you do not want to be in traffic for several hours, it is best to abandon the trip, or choose another path. Also, a lot of photos on social networks confirmed serious downloads on highways.
The most important thing is that congestion is not only in the morning and evening, but also during the day. The streets of Riga have not seen such a collapse for a long time. Today, the authorities are trying to increase the number of public transport in every possible way.
After the pandemic that fell on humanity, many residents of Riga decided to relax in nature and get some fresh air. Most likely, on the eve of the weekend, everyone decided to go to their favorite places. But everything was not so smooth and the journey was marred by serious traffic jams.
