I read somewhere that they are planning on introducing a new system in Portugal where all the vehicle ID details will be stored on a chip on the licence plates. Anyone know more?

Have heard that if you drive in Lisbon you take your life in your hands! Is it as bad as it is made out to be? Anyone any views on the matter?

I travel twice daily across the Vasco da Gama bridge. I am horrified at the speed some people seem to travel at - I see on average four crashes a day while travelling to Alvalade. My son of 7 witnessed a man being killed on the other side of the road while we were waiting to pay the toll, an horrific experience for him. When does it stop, why is nothing being done about it?

Another car question while I'm on a learning curve - aside from the accident report form, are there any rules about what you have to have in the car. I know about the safy vest and the triangle, I've got those. Does anyone know what else there is?

Well, it's not actually that dramatic!! I reversed into a concrete bollard thing just over bumper height and mangled the corner of my car. I don't really care as it's a P.O.Rubbish car BUT, I realised that I have no idea what to do if I'd actually reversed into another car. I have insurance and everything of course, but I'm not sure what actually happens after a crash what to do, where to go etc. Does anyone know?

Hi All Has anyone taken motorbike lessons in this area. I have a UK car driving licence but I want the motorbike part (A1 up to 125cc). I am after recommendations for Escola de Conducao that are willing to teach an English speaker who can read a small bit of Portuguese, so this will hopefully be useful for taking the theory test which I assume will be all Portuguese. Any ideas of how many hours of lessons are required for this licence. melhor cumprimentos Nial

Can someone explain to me the European's Commissions legislation to introduce day lights on cars etc by 2011? I didn't catch the full story, surely it can't be what I think - that's crazy!
