Yes, same colored code is a must for safety, since 20 years we are hoping for it… If I remember correctly every brand was using the same concept of 'red on the left' in the early days (when there were probably only 3 or 4 brands), but then so...

Re: Brazil - How best to return from Atins to Cumbuco?
