[Biturbos4] Fitting cruise control?

I would argue that if people used cruise control more frequently then
traffic might flow more smoothly.  Have you ever set the cruise control
at 75 and then watched the same car pass you, slow down, pass you again
and so on and so on?  I also find that cruise control on a freeway keeps
me from excessive speed which is far too easy to do if one isn't paying
close attention.  

As for the unsafe driver - they are unsafe with the cruise control on or
off.  The cell phone is a great convenience but I have to admit that
nearly every time I see someone do something really stupid behind the
wheel of a car there is a cell phone pressed to their ear.

       If I had my way, no car would come with cruise control.  I think
is a completely unsafe feature. When the cruise control is on  it is a
easier to talk on the cell phone, another big distraction.

      Cars should be driven.  I get pleasure out of accelerating, going 
through curves, braking.  My S4 makes me a better driver, because it 
stimulates my senses.  I feel safer to have one of these type cars
around me 
than some "Saturn" kind of car where the driver most likely has the
on,  one hand is holding the cell, and the other hand on and off the 
steering wheel gesturing or holding a smoke.  Ok to do at home, but
do not do it driving next to me.
