Latvia has successfully met the EU requirements in road transportation and introduced in legislation main conditions regarding to technical parameters of road transport vehicles. Legislative acts of EU determine that Member States may allow circulation in their territory of vehicles or vehicle combinations for national transportation of goods, which are not in conformity with the some characteristics of Council Directives. There are two Member States fully allowing circulation in their territory of extra long vehicle combinations. This situation causes some misunderstanding for Latvian haulers. There are several pullbacks for introduction modular combinations in Latvia. Specific conditions are preconditions for research of opportunities to start use long vehicle combinations in Latvia. It is important to recognise the positive role that the vehicle modular combinations can play in a sustainable transport policy in Latvia and others Member States.
