With a parking spot in Brazil - the problem - there is an acute shortage of them. Local drivers often leave vehicles at its discretion: cluttering the central part of the road, "propping up" other machines, etc. Offices and organizations with their own parking. Many parking lots are located underground. In areas with a sign in the form of a crossed out the letter "E" to park the car is prohibited. If the parking lot is marked with «azul», it means it is only for owners of special cards.
Most city parking - paid with a different value:
- 1:00 in the middle of a lively area, or - 10 USD;
- 1:00 in a remote area - 2-3 USD.
In large parking areas working staff that finds a place, bring a check to pay the driver, but not responsible for the safety of the vehicle.

For example, the driver will have to spend about $ 60 to go from Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo. As for benefits, the toll road is always qualitative, they are called "green."
