In Liepaja, with the importance of a large number of drivers, a "Technical Inspection Night" took place, organized by the Road Safety Directorate (CSDD), in which 200 vehicles were tested together.

Stunned tires and completely worn treads, rusty holes in car bodies and car parts and lighthouses with wood strings – this is a reality that is opened every day in a technical inspection, as well as on road car control.
