What regulates the determination and examination of black spots in Lithuania? 

Who is responsible for identifying, examining and removing black spots? 

  • Black spots are identified, examined and removed annually in accordance with the procedure established by the Minister of Transport.  
  • The public institution Transport Competence Agency identifies black spots on roads of national significance and conducts their investigation; 
  • The joint-stock company Lithuanian Motor Road Directorate organizes the removal of black spots on roads of state importance; 
  • Municipal administrations organize the identification, investigation and removal of black spots on roads and streets of local importance. 


  • A black spot is a section or intersection of a road or street (including roads and streets with a dividing line) where 4 or more creditable traffic accidents have occurred in the last 4 calendar years. 
  • Black spot passport  - a collection of accumulated information about the black spot. 
  • Black spot investigation – an investigation during which a road or street inspection is carried out on the spot and which aims to determine the risk factors of traffic accidents that occurred in the black spot, related to the safety deficiencies of the road infrastructure, and to select the necessary traffic safety measures. 

According to 2018-2021 In 2022, 42 black spots were identified on roads of national significance – 18 in rural areas, 24 in settlements. 2022 list of black spots on roads of national significance HERE >>

An interactive map of road black spots of national significance for the year 2022 has been prepared for the public. It contains recommendations for drivers for each black spot in 2022 , prepared by experts, taking into account the circumstances of the formation of the black spot. These recommendations can help vehicle drivers understand dangerous situations and what to pay attention to when driving in emergency areas.

TKA draws attention to the fact that the black spots have been determined and presented on the map only those black spots that have formed on roads of national importance in the countryside and on the sections of these roads that cross settlements, i.e. i.e. black spots formed on city streets and local roads that do not belong to the national road network are not marked on this map
