Was not even aware CC worked at such a speed and not about to try it.
It works at about 28 and above.
I struggle to see why it is dangerous, if it was dangerous at 30 it would be dangerous at 50. If you are suggesting that by using CC you are not in control of the vehicle, I would disagree. It would be the same no matter what the speed is. I also use my CC to stop me accidentally exceeding the speed limit. I would not use it say in a town centre but in the suburban areas where speed limits can go from 50 to 30 and back to 50 then its a godsend.
Interestingly here in France it is not sold as Cruise Control at all, but as "limiteur de vitesse" literally meaning speed limiter and the car mags etc here actively encourage its use as speed limiting system to avoid fines in towns where most speed traps are, rather than as a motorway crusie control. The "limiteur de vitesse" sold in France is not a speed limiter or alarm such as fitted in Saab's but the same system sold as CC in the UK.
