Ok.. I came on a little harsh. Here in the USA there are a lot
of people set the cruise and hang out in the fast lane and fall asleep
oblivious to what is around them.
I went to Italy last year and was impressed how they drive on the
autostrada. You pass and immediately get back into the right lane. Wish I
had rented something better than 1.3 liter Corsa, At first it is a little
unnerving to have a Alfa blow by you at 120mph +. I got caught out in the
fast land at about 85mph and paid the price by a tailgating Audi.
Good law in the UK. We have some states with handsfree laws, but
not where I live. It drives me nuts to be around a big SUV weaving down the
street while the "driver" talks on the cell.
You did come up with a legitimate reason to have cruise control. I
have noticed the "creeping effect" when driving the S4.
