* 96 hours of fortnightly driving time (instead of 90 hours)
* 45 minutes break after 5.5 hours of driving (instead of 4.5 hours)
* normal weekly rest period of at least 24 hours without any compensation (instead of 45 hours)
March 30 - drivers entering Latvia have to complete a form (in English) in which they agree not to visit public places / stay in public places (except for parking lots and gas stations)
