5. If You Drive, Don't Phone Brazilians love to talk on the telephone - at home, on the beach and in their cars. And that can be a lethal combination. Statistics show that Brazilians are among the world's worst drivers. Every year almost 50,000 Brazilians die in traffic accidents. Police say drivers are undisciplined and easily distracted. So a new law bans talking on the phone while driving. Drivers must pull over to take a call. Many agree it's a good idea but doubt the $25 fine is enough to get Brazilian drivers to hang up.
