Tom was right. I read the word "rodizio" and all I could think of was an "all you can eat" restaurant.
Marcelo, California did have restrictions on gasoline purchases several years ago but not on driving. The problem was related to the availability of gasoline, not to pollution. If the license plate ended in an odd number, you could only buy gasoline on odd days. If the license plate ended in an even number, you could only buy gasoline on even days.
The air quality in California has improved greatly over the past 10-20 years. All cars are inspected for smog emissions every 24 months. The older the car, the more difficult (and expensive) it is for a car to pass the test. I drive a GEO with almost 300,000 kms on it. Last year it cost me about $300 to get it to pass the test. If you buy a car that has not been inspected within the past 90 days, you must have it tested immediately.
