Mobile video surveillance cameras have been used for several years by the Riga City Police to record various offences, but in recent weeks they have also been used to monitor the conscientious use of public transport lanes. In January, the police caught 117 drivers driving in the public transport lane.
Currently, mobile video surveillance cameras used to detect drivers driving illegally in public transport lanes have been installed in two locations in Riga – General Radziņa Embankment (Ģenerāļa Radziņa krastmalā) and Gogoļa Street (Gogoļa ielā). However, other locations may be selected over time, so the police urge drivers not to break the rules.
According to the Road Traffic Act, driving in a lane designated for public passenger transport is subject to a fine of EUR 40.
