Driving Advices for Brazil – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
While driving, do not forget to pay attention to road signs that indicate the speed limit. They can be located in most unexpected places. Experienced motorists usually recommend paying attention to local drivers as they never slow down without a serious reason.
If main highways in the country are distinguished by good quality of road surface, secondary roads are not so good. There often many dents and holes on them. Some holes are really big, so it is not recommended to drive fast on them or travel on such roads at night.
Road works in Brazil are fairly organized. There is always a special worker in the uniform who informs drivers about the closed area. If he is holding a red sign that says «PARE», this means that the road is closed. If the worker holds a green sign with the word «SIGA», it is permitted to drive.

Rio de Janeiro Galeao International Airport (or Rio de Janeiro Galeao Tom Jobim International Airport) is a leading airport that services the capital of Brazil. The airport was named after one of the Brazilian beaches. There had been the Naval Academy of Brazil at the site of the airport before. In 1993, the airport was renamed. Its name perpetuated the name of the Brazilian musician Antonio Jobim. In 2014, as the airport operator changed, its name changed too, so it is called Tom Jobim International Airport now. The airport annually services over 16 million passengers. There are two air-strips. In the territory of the airport, there is the base of the Brazil Air Force in the former passenger terminal. The airport is 20 km from the center of the capital.

From the airport, you can reach the city by two types of taxi: blue cars (F-class), and yellow cars (usual ones). You can take a taxi in the Arrival terminal.
