Cruise Control Can Be Dangerous

Most drivers may not be aware that using their vehicle's cruise control during inclement weather can be dangerous. The constant speed can increase the chance that your tires will hydroplane and you could lose control of your vehicle.

Only use your cruise control when the roadways are dry and clean, and never during rainy or icy conditions. Also, never use cruise control in city or congested traffic as the decreased control of your vehicle could contribute to an accident.
