Cruise control on highways or any long, open two or more lane roads should be used. Not an issue if people want to consistently speed. This is for people who start at 60 mph in a 60 mph limit zone, then go 52, 57, 63, 49, 67, 55, etc... PICK A SPEED AND STICK WITH IT. I shouldn't get passed by you, while using cruise control, then have to pass you in three miles.. Only to get passed again.

I accept your challenge. While cruise control saves fuel, it is also dangerous, especially in bad weather. Let us say someone sets his speed to 100 miles in a highway and doesn't pay attention. Suddenly, it starts to rain very hard and a very slow car is in front of you. What will happen? This is just one of my points.

(skip about on the same side. )

In my opinion, nobody should only use Cruise Control consistently.
Machines, basically speaking, have ZERO intelligence.
"AI" , "Smartphones" , Intelligent cars" , etc. , don't exist.

Are you both on the Con side?
What kind of Debate is that?

There's no such thing as "Speeding" - "speed limits" don't exist.
Driving on your own property, at any speed,
can't be, & isn't "illegal" , a "crime" etc.
