Driving across Baltic borders

Jump to last reply

In early October I'll be spending about ten days with a rental car driving from Tallinn, via Riga, to Vilnius and back.

I've read that there's a need to be cautious with police and border control, particularly with reference to breaking the speed limit (although I've also heard that more than 60% of Estonians do this all the time), and with demands for paperwork which are intended to find some flaw if at all possible, so that a 'fine' can be demanded. I'm well-travelled, I've seen much worse than this sounds to be, and had direct experience of probably very similar shenanigans in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, and on several crossings of borders in that area. But I wonder if anyone has direct experience of these difficulties, or of driving in the Baltics in general, and can give me any useful advice?

Additionally, a quick glance at a map with no detail at all suggests no direct major routes between some of the capitals. This doesn't bother me because I prefer driving on country roads anyway. Or should I stick to what highways there are, for any reason?

With thanks for all thoughts on these issues,
