They make Me wear a helmet just to walk through the mall. What's the big deal?

Maybe she got the ticket for not giving helmet?

Life's tough, wear a helmet!

I make sure I wear my helmet when I play Samba de Amigo!

SAMBA!

The Brazilian Traffic Authority published this composite sketch of the incident:

Laws are set up to be abused by the law. Why the other day, i was ARRESTED, even though I was wearing a Helmut.

What was it N.W.A. said?

Ask any ER doc, the most common injury from inside the car is a head injury.
 
2003-02-12 01:41:22 AM  
thats one hairy lady...

I want to believe this is a joke, I really do, but something just won't let me. It's Brazil, of course most anyone they pull over will be Hispanic.

Mabe she was a retard or something. Aren't they required to wear the cool guy retard crash helmets at all times while in public? Retards not wearing helmets make about as much sense as Chewbacca being from Endor.

I want to believe THIS comment is a joke.

Brazil: white (includes Portuguese, German, Italian, Spanish, Polish) 55%, mixed white and African 38%, African 6%, other (includes Japanese, Arab, Amerindian) 1%

Have a nice day.

Hahaha... Tahts funi stuph!

BTW, we aren't hispanics, we have no cultural lineage to the spanish, only to the damn portuguese.

Good lord. Terrible headline and even more mundane story. Sleeping mods...AWAKEN!

"Brazilian woman given a ticket for not wearing a helmet. Several appeals later, courts admit she was in fact driving a car"

So? What, is this some Left wing wacko attempt to impose their fascistic "can't wear a helmet in a car" laws intended to help undeserving minorities and raise our taxes?

I swear, damned liberal media.

/woke up ornery this morning

Another addition to the "Hispanic" thing.
I have an acquaintance from Brazil. She has natural blond hair and blue eyes. Oh, yeah- She's farking hot, also. Too bad she recently went back there with her Japanese boyfriend...

The "got. nothin." may have been your first clue, had you worked on reading comprehension.

they must have some high accident incidents thus requiring drivers to wear helmet, and perhaps fireproof jumpsuit, just in case of car fire upon collision
 
2003-02-12 11:26:01 AM  
Gudel, are they driving a lot of Pintos in Brazil?
 
2003-02-12 02:20:45 PM  
And they say our courts system (U.S.) is screwed up. Wait, she still would lose in our court system
