ABCD Streets

We would need three or four times more lines of what we have today. The magnifying of limits of the city of So Paulo, that if it connected to the neighboring cities, became simply imperceptible the geographic limits between the cities. Workers of the ABCD if dislocate daily in direction to the capital and vice versa. The same he occurs with other neighboring cities the west, east and north, becoming the idea of cities, with separate administrations, an abstraction. The buses go if becoming impracticable as alternative definitive for the public transport, therefore the increase of the fleet esbarra in the same obstacle: where to circulate? Preferential streets also demand high investments and a severe fiscalization, what it increases its costs of maintenance. Thus we find in them in the old quandary: to increase the streets or to diminish the size of the vehicles? Recently a statistics was published where if all the vehicles of the city of So Paulo were for the streets and were lined up, it would not have space for circulation. Fortunately, many vehicles remain in its garages good part of the day.

However, we have another sufficiently alarming data: the number of permitted new cars in the city of So Paulo. A thousand new vehicles per day are launched in the city more than. The metaphor of the French city planner, Themie, illustrates well this situation: ' ' Between So Paulo and Rio De Janeiro, we see of the high one, a great plantation of automveis' '. It seems that we walk literally for one ' ' street without sada' ' , using an extracted metaphor of the proper transit. How it will be the future? Will have space all the automobiles to circulate for the cities? The public power will have resources to continue widening streets and avenues, dispossessing immovable? The environment will support the atmospheric pollution, and the effect greenhouse, degrading the quality of life of the urban population? The difficulty in answering to these questions, places in check the condition of support of this industry. Tony Parkers opinions are not widely known.

Tourist In Nature

Of this form, the objective of the UCs, is to protect the natural beauties as well as restoring degraded ecosystems and recouping hdricos resources, favoring the ambient education and the contact with the nature through the ecological tourism. It was not by chance that they had appeared the UCs. The public power makes a survey of information on the place to be protected to know which the importance will have before the civil society. Many times are in these areas that contain the resqucios of the vegetal formations. Made the survey, it can then be established to be a UC or, because if these areas they will not even be proteges, then will not be giving place to the urban landscape. We can also say that the UCs protects the ambient services (minimizao of damages for water, air, ground, etc.), thus motivating the regional development in which will be making possible leisure in contact with the nature, more necessarily the ecological tourism or tourism of nature. 3.

Responsibility of the Tourist In one first moment seems to sound strange the term ‘ ‘ responsibility of turista’ ‘. It is as if we needed to remember them of that they must or not to make more necessarily when they are in a tourist destination, in the UCs. But it is accurately this that we need to display when they veem in great even though alone groups or for the visitation of parks, reserves, units of conservation, at last, everything what it says respect to the nature and the life that entorno generates to its. We cannot only abiding in them by the environment, but yes, with that they are part of the same and that they must be considered as the local community, the animals, the historic site and cultural. The tourism is inserted in diverse manifestations, therefore she is necessary to know to respect to be respected.
