    Since stats or technology can be used for good or evil it is my opinion that this points out at a need for more driver training that to the evils of cruise control. People are not in the habit of doing bad things intentionally when driving. They just do what they "normally" do. Without guidance nor instruction they all think they are doing the right thing. Why not publish more features as how to drive better?

    1) Do not use Cruise Control driving in heavy traffic, bad weather conditions. Very steep ascending and descending hills. I always use cruise control except what I have previously listed. Gas mileage in my 2002 Mazda 626 LX is 33 mpg w/c.c. and 28 mpg w/o c.c

    Are they using the cruise control correctly , there first point is they stayed in the passing lane longer because they had difficulty modulating speed. IF your using cruise your speed should be the same ,ALL THE TIME. The second point is once they pass they dont leave enough room when they cut back over. Ahhhh isnt that just the opposite of what you just said?

    Read it again; it isn't just the opposite.

    And while you're thinking about that, it should be "THEIR fist point.." (the possessive pronoun, not a place), and "If YOU'RE using cruise.." (the contraction of 'you are,' not the possessive pronoun, 'your').
