Lithuania's Road

  • 2008-07-30
Dear Baltic Times,

I just saw your article about Lithuanian roads being the most dangerous in Europe, and I have to agree.  It can be scary driving here, especially on the 2-lane roads throughout the country where cars regularly speed past each other at high speeds separated by sometimes less than a meter of space. There are too many drivers who think that their cars are toys and extensions of their crotch. Impatience and inconsiderateness to other drivers is rampant. I went to a Lithuanian driving school where the instructors stressed safety and driving carefully above all, and I know most of the drivers here have had to go through the same courses - but it seems when they finally receive their licenses, all is forgotten, and they become maniacs.
