 RIGA, Dec 19 - Ahead of the upcoming Christmas holidays, there has been no substantial increase of vehicle lines on the Latvia-Russia border, as Latvian international truckers association "Latvijas Auto" President Valdis Trezins admitted to the business information portal ''Nozare.lv''.
He pointed out that there were 400 trucks in line at one point at the Terehova border control point this week. ''This means that trucks do have a while to wait to cross the border, but the lines are not as extreme as in previous years around this time, when drivers had to wait two or more days to cross the border,'' Trezins emphasized.
As reported, last year at around Christmas time, trucks lines on the Latvia-Russia border reached 1,200 at one point.
