Cruise control is an extremely popular aid that enables the driver of a motor vehicle to accelerate to a  chosen  speed,  activate  the  system  and  then  keep  to  that  speed  without  having  to  touch  the accelerator.  Because  there  is  more  and  more  traffic  on  the  road  and  many  areas  where  there are permanent  or  temporary  speed  limits,  many  drivers  feel  safer  behind  the  wheel  of  a car  that  has cruise control. The cruise control electrics are simple to switch on and off. In most cars  the    cruise  control  electrics  can  be  turned  off  by  pushing  the  brake  pedal  as well as pressing the cruise control switch. 

Cruise control systems have the advantages of providing a less stressful, more comfortable motoring experience,  reducing  fuel  consumption,  minimising  the  risk  of  speeding  fines, especially  in  average speed areas, and lowering exhaust emissions.

Cruise  control  systems  are  often  fitted  in  vehicles  when  they  are  manufactured.  However,  it  is possible  to  have  a  cruise  control  system  fitted  in  a  vehicle  that  does  not  have  one.  The  parts required  for  the  installation  of  cruise  control  can  be  easily  accessed  and  there are  many  auto electricians who specialise in cruise control electrics.

Cruise control is a valuable aid to the driver and makes driving a more pleasurable experience.
