Seimas conservatives Andrius Vyšniauskas, Paulė Kuzmickienė and Mindaugas Skritulskas appealed to the Minister of Transport, proposing to change Soviet-designed road signs.

Seimas conservatives Andrius Vyšniauskas, Paulė Kuzmickienė and Mindaugas Skritulskas appealed to the Minister of Transport, proposing to change Soviet-designed road signs.

According to the parliamentarians, the vast majority of road signs currently valid and used in Lithuania, taking into account their design, are identical or similar to the road signs approved during the occupation of the USSR.

“The graphic design and font of the road signs used in Lithuania are identical or similar to the road signs used in Russia, Belarus and other post-Soviet countries, as they are also produced and used according to the same Soviet standard,” reads a statement issued by the Conservative faction of the Seimas.

“Latvia and Estonia, unlike Lithuania, have long since changed the graphic design of their road signs and use different fonts,” the report emphasizes.

In a letter initiated by parliamentarians to the Ministry of Transport, it is indicated that it is necessary to create road signs close to or similar to those used in European Union (EU) countries. According to members of the Seimas, these changes could be implemented within the next 10 years.

Members of the Seimas note that these proposals are not new, but, according to them, the Ministry of Transport has not taken the initiative.
