Rhode Island car rental information

What are the driving conditions like in Rhode Island, United States?

If you're visiting in winter, be prepared for wintry conditions. Snowfall is common from December to late April, with particularly heavy snowfalls that may cause major disruptions throughout the state and across neighboring Massachusetts. Precipitation levels are greater than those of most other US states. As such, you may need to be extra careful when driving a rental car during the wet season. When looking for cheap rental cars, a good type of car to use would be an SUV or a 4x4 vehicle. If you're visiting in summer, the roads are generally good and tarmac conditions are great. If you need to take a road trip in winter, then ensure that your car is fitted with snow tires to help prevent the risk of skidding and sliding on patches of ice. If you're driving along a major motorway, adhere to all speed limits as well as other traffic protocols, such as passing and changing lanes safely.
