· U-Drive It!: Take hands on control over cars, helicopters,
airplanes, and ambulances to fight crime or respond to disasters. Turn
up the siren on the police car and chase down car-jackers, or control
the helicopter spotlight to track down the bank robbers. If you feel
the urge to go to the dark side, drive the getaway van and make a run
for the border. As you take charge and solve missions, you'll earn new
rewards buildings and vehicles, your approval rating will skyrocket
in the polls and your Sim population grow.

areas for future expansion.

or place a wide avenue to avert future disasters.
