I am new in RJ, the driving here is often crazy. After more than 10 years in pro driving business with comfortable cars in north europe, i see a very different driving culture here. Do people feel safe here, or could it be a market for vip transport with better cars, and good drivers? Near 40.000 people die in traffic related accidents per year in Brasil, almost the same as in USA where they drive many times more.
Can a Canadian tourist purchase a new bike, license and insure it. I'm in Teresopolis now and would like to get around more and a bike seems convenient. I can't seen to find and information on this and the bike dealers don't even know and I don't speak portuguese and the DETRAN is hard to get a hold of and I don't even think they know. I would really like to tour this beautiful country.
