Yes, anyone legally in the US can buy and register a car. I have several European and Australian friends that own and keep motorhomes here even though they are not citizens. Some Canadians do the same thing. The only time Canadians get in trouble is if they try to take the vehicle across the Canadian border. Canada gets on their case and forces them to ...

If the speed limit is 55, you shouldn't drive more than 7 below or they can ticket you. Its the same with going over. Technically they can pull you for going 56 in a 55 but not many police officers are that picky.

It may be cheaper to rent...

For example, the US has two visitors visas (B1/B2) but even if you don't need one, one of the requirements of the visa waiver program is that “Travel Purpose Must be Permitted on a Visitor (B) Visa”. Similarly, the requirements to enter the Schengen area for a ...
