 Rhode Island Driver’s Manual
A Message from the Governor
Dear New Motorist,Welcome to the roadways of Rhode Island. Although we are a small state, our streets andhighways can be challenging. Many of today’s roads evolved from colonial days and meander ratherthan follow straight lines. Whether we are traveling on narrow suburban streets or interstatehighways, we all share the road with fellow drivers, and we are all responsible for our safety and thesafety of others.The State of Rhode Island has created laws to regulate driving behavior in order to provide asafe driving environment. Requirements for adults to wear seatbelts, to place children aged seven oryounger in appropriate car seats in the back seat of a vehicle, and to obey traffic lights and trafficsigns are all part of this effort.Another important safety element is the prohibition against drunk driving. You should knowthat state law now makes driving with a blood alcohol level of .08% a crime rather than a civiloffense. Drunk driving by anyone of any age is a serious offense since it may easily endanger thelives of many people.Following the rules of the road, with safety as the first concern, should enable all drivers toenjoy the privilege in the Ocean State.Best wishes,Donald L. CarcieriGovernor
