Trams and safety[edit]

I should maybe just plunge forward and edit the article, but I'm not an expert or that familiar with the city. I just visited Rio (and Sao Paulo) and I was scared stiff at first by all the stuff I'd picked up from guide books about the potential dangers. I'm not saying you don't need to be careful, but is it really as bad as all that? I didn't feel taking the tram was a risk and neither, by the looks of it, did hordes of other tourists. (I might add that my printed guide book made no mention of any danger related to the trams, except for one comment about the Estacao Carioca area where the trams start, which is completely the opposite to what the article says. I won't say what the guide said as I don't want to risk any copying.) While some general advice to take care and highlights of anything particularly dangerous is surely welcome, I can't help thinking the current article is over-egging the pudding a bit. Maybe I'm just totally naive. Anyone? --zorn 00:56, 29 January 2010 (EST)
