People in Brazil are afraid of driving alone or even together at night
or late in the evening, since many youth armed with guns stop them and rob them. It is not the robbery that
the people are afraid of but the fact that most of them are under the influence of drugs and are rather
chaotic when it comes to using their weapons. There are around 50,000 bulletproof cars in Brazil now. Since
second hand bullet cars are also available, today, it is not the just the rich and the elite that are opting
for the cars, but also people from the middle class. Such is the violence and on the streets.
Around 25 bulletproof cars are being produced every month in a factory and there are 45 such companies! Vehicles are stripped down
and padded with protective material and reinforced glass. It costs a lot of money but vehicle owners are willing to invest that kind of money because
the roads are so unsafe. What is the police force doing the world over?
