My experience is that Brazil is a bit top heavy with BURROcracia. After months of fighting with DETRAN, for example, I found a bureaucrat who wasn't a BURROcrat. He made some calls, wrote same letters, and he saved me several hundred reais that two DETRAN offices told me I needed to pay to get a license. Nobody bent the rules. People just did what the rules said to do.
Have you ever compared traffic laws with how people really drive in Brazil? So many laws, so few people who obey them. When was the last time you saw a cop stopping a driver for breaking a traffic law? Possibly there is a connection between Brazilian traffic violations and how many other things function (malfunction).
Okay, I'll shut up now.
