Mountain driving, 35 mph car speeds up to 55 in passing sections slows back to 35 after. Its a wonder no one has done a study of peoples insecurities and how they express them behind the wheel of a car.
The #1 cause of accidents in the US is testosterone.

I really appreciate adaptive cruise systems because they take some of my ego out of the equation. I find it easier to be a safe and patient driver when its in control.

I hate being tailgated on snowy roads . When I go sideways the last thing I need is that asshole t-boning me. I will virtually come to a complete stop in passing zone to get rid of them.

Similar to the car that does 50 in the 55.... and 50 in the 35 section through town.

Even though one cannot experience peak driving using it, I use my cruise whenever possible. It's actually how I know people are speeding up or slowing down driven by my presence as referenced in my earlier post.

I use cruise almost 100% of the time I'm driving. Adaptive cruise so far has only caused me problems.

Adaptive cruise is the best. Regular cruise takes most of the ego out of the situation, but there's still all of those times where you have to cancel it when someone pulls in front of you, or where you start to crawl up on someone because your speed is 0.8MPH out of sync with theirs.

It is the #1 feature I wish my car had, but the assholes only made it available in the top trim package which includes a bunch of shit I definitely don't want.

The worst part is that half the time, they don't even want to go faster than you. They are just shitty drivers who can't modulate their speed without pacing another vehicle 10 feet in front of them.

So they don't pass you given the opportunity...so you slow down more and maybe they pass you...only to drive slower than they were driving when they were behind you.

I’m sorrynotsorry to admit this, but if you’ve been holding me up for miles, you’re going to get passed no matter how much you decide to speed up in that passing zone

Narrow winding snow covered roads with downgrades and uphills weed out the don't give a fuckers pretty quickly. One day last winter I drove past 4 upside downers in 10 miles.

I got tailgated on a snowy interstate once. Once there was room to pass the guy flies around me, and not 10 seconds later spins out and winds up in a snow drift. Wish I had a dash cam because I would love to relive that moment of karma.

Just got a front/rear dash cam combo. Looking forward to installing it.

The rear view really helps show the crazy
