I use cruise control in town all the time when its empty early morning. I set to 36 as that is a real 33 mph.. You would be unlucky to get a ticket at 33mph.Hi guys,
Since I bought my Leaf I have had a few speed fines just because my area is full of cameras and it's very hard to to keep speed under 30mph every single time when we're not thinking about it.
I am always very respectful to others on the road and I don't speed even on motorways, but I have now a few 35 and 36mph fines when I driving carefully and not putting anyone is risk... This is totally ridiculous and a money grabber above everything else!!
After these fines I was thinking to myself how good it would be if my car had a system that could limit the speed no matter how much you press the accelerator.
The other day I was playing with the cruise control for the second time since I have the car and I've realised that my car already has that. I was an absolute surprise!
I thought the cruise limit was just to keep the speed on motorways without pressing the accelerator, but I never thought it could be used to limit the actual maximum speed!
No more money sucking fines from me now. Sod them.
