Your mileage may vary. Please go slow through intersections when raining as water and oil that accumulate there can cause you to hydo-plane just like driving on glazed roads in a northern state. Warning:Do not speed going through the city of Waldo. Most other cities you won't have the ability. Also learn the "sting ray-shuffle" before wading at the beach.
