An SUV will give you enough space and traction to make it a smooth driving experience. In the summer months, a convertible gives the right summer feeling and maximum sunshine exposure.
In Providence, 20 mph is permitted in school zones and 25 mph in residential areas, unless indicated otherwise. Outside built-up areas, the maximum speed limit is 50 mph and freeways allow up to 65 mph. Always heed posted signs and adapt speed to the weather conditions.
