RIGA - Over 900 trucks were waiting in queues at the Latvian-Russian border Friday morning, which is a bit less than on Thursday Dec. 7.
According to the Latvian National Border Guard, there were 762 trucks waiting at Terehovo crossing point and 183 vehicles were lining at Grebnevo crossing.
Thursday morning there were 845 trucks lining in Terehovo and 220 in Grebnevo.
The lines on the Latvian-Russian border started growing especially long in mid-August this year. The long lines of trucks are a threat to traffic safety, waiting drivers create heaps of litter on the roadside and population in nearby villages have to live in constant noise from truck engines.
