Cruise Control

How many of you leave the Cruise Control in the "on" position all of the time?  It is not recommended for safety reasons:
1.  Accidentally hit "resume" when it's set at 65 and traffic has you slowed down to 50.  Unexpected acceleration can cause panic.
2.  If you are making a turn and hit the resume button, you could easily spin out on the turn.
3.  Living in Wisconsin, having the cruise on in rain, icy conditions or snow, can quickly cause a spin out if the car accelerates.

Summary:  When NOT using cruise - always leave in the OFF setting.
