No Cruise Control, Not in the Rain

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. It happened to a family member, and he was badly hurt. Hope this will save someone from this dilemma.

Thank you for this information. I think I had heard this a long time ago, but had forgotten about it and have been riding with my cruise on all the time. I won't make that mistake again!

Thank you for this information, I read about this a couple of years ago, now I have twin boys that have just started to drive and I tell them this often.
