To be prepared for sleet, ice, rain, or simply maneuvering through the city, a compact 4-wheel-drive car is the perfect combination. Such a car will provide the essential traction required for wet or sleety roads, as well as help you navigate the city without being too bulky or causing problems with parking.
In residential areas, the regulated speed limit is 25 mph unless posted otherwise. When venturing out of the city on secondary roads, the maximum speed limit lies at 55 mph, and freeways permit up to 70 mph. When the roads are wet, it is crucial to reduce your speed and drive carefully.
