I set the cruise control so I can see a bit of dark space between the speedometer pointer and the speedometer marking for the speed limit.

64---72 usually and less depending on right lane traffic. Lately the speed lane cruisers get pushed by the invincible Zoomers, over into the slower lane using(on C.C. cruising motorists)which caused them to go off cruise usually.

No matter what speed one selects on cruise, within a few seconds someone will push ahead hard to cause many changes or altercations for the driver who wants to conserve, relax, and make their destination safely.

Yes I am one that punches it along with the cruise still on to eliminate a bad close encounter(groups of speed lanes cruisers)staying glued close-up. Todays Trend.... Often cruise on gets useless, depends on the MOON!!! HA!
