  • 1. Translation – Section [ 7.2.7 ]: Section [ 7.2.7 ] Safety Study of the Profile of Tourists - People with Disabilities Technical Document - 2013 (Original title: Estudo do Perfil de Turistas – Pessoas com Deficiência Documento Técnico – 2013 Translation by Scott Rains, srains@oco.net Safety People with disabilities, even those who cope well with their personal issues, experience feelings related to fragility and vulnerability. As a result, there is a perception of two types of threats: 1. Physical integrity. Fear of a fall, an injury, getting lost, drowning, etc. The fear of the threats related to physical integrity can restrict experiences of people with disabilities and/or make them dependent on the assistance of family and friends. This makes is understandable because most believe that service providers are not prepared to deal with a person with a disability. 2. Urban violence. Fear of: assault, possible fights, kidnappings, murders, etc. With regard to urban violence, people with disabilities do not feel safer than the average citizen and feel that they have, as do these other citizens, little protection from those responsible for public safety. Therefore, they avoid hazardous locations transit late at night and do not carry jewelry and large sums of money. Quotes from respondents:
  • 2. "I always go with someone not because it is necessarily a security issue but because I want to share my experience with someone. It’s not cool to go out to have fun alone. In the end the company is worth a lot." (Porto Alegre - Visual Disability EP) "You can not visit all the places you want to alone. It’s not everywhere in Brazil that I would feel safe to visiting alone. People do not know how to deal with us. How will do in the hands of these people?" (São Paulo – Visual Disability EP) "I travel alone so do not mess with drinking ... I know my responsibilities like getting back early to the hotel and staying with my group of friends ... Every one should know their responsibilities, be aware. Now there are places where if you think, you no longer feel safe there and would rather be somewhere else. The favelas of Rio de Janeiro, for example, I 'm afraid of them.” (Curitiba - EP Hearing Disability) "For example, I would feel insecure in the Amazon. But if nobody with a disability went there then no one will want to change anything there. Now if we start to show up there, they will have to make way for us. Then, with time, things can change." (Belo Horizonte - Motor Disability EP) Full document available here: http://www.slideshare.net/srains/full-brazilian-inclusive-tourism-market-study-2013 Pp 41-41
