Hand pushing cruise control in a car.

I use my cruise control on an open road. It saves gas. I would like to caution you about using cruise control on wet roads. Don't use it on wet roads! Your tires may hydroplane, and the cruise will keep increasing the speed of the car. When the tires bite and get traction again, the car will skid and swerve. This could be very dangerous.

Remember, when it's raining, don't worry about saving money, you may be saving a life by not using your cruise control then. Hope you travel safe!

Did you know you should never use your cruise control when driving in the rain or snow? This can be very dangerous because if your tires lose contact with the pavement, your car can hydroplane and may speed up and you will literally fly through the air.

Do not use your cruise control when driving in rain, should you hydroplane, your car will accelerate 10 to 15 mph causing possibly a serious or deadly accident.
