Re: [MH-list] cruise control, is it worth it?

Not sure there is a need to cause offence to people to rattle a few cages! I
think its more about personal driving preferences than inadequacy.

I am an avid user of cruise control – and make fullest use of it – but I can
understand why people would choose not to use it rather than constantly
using and resuming!

Just because people have different preferences to you does not mean they are

Hi Bertie,

Due to age and disability I could not do the long trips across Europe that I
do with out cruise control.

I also use it a lot in the UK. The people who say it's a waste of time here
are just showing how inadequate they are as drivers.

I recently drove home from the Malvern Show and got on to the M5 about 10.30
am from there it was motorway/dual carriageway all the way home. I stayed in
5th all the way and had to adjust the speed a couple of times using the
plus/minus buttons. I was travelling about 62/63 MPH.

With a bit of observation, anticipation and forward planning it can be done.

That should rattle the bars on a few cages.

Safe travelling.
