I use it mostly in traffic. In queues, when not able to really drive the car as it should be driven. Activate Innodrive and it follows the queue, stop, start, turning. You can sit back and enjoy the view with a hand on the wheel and it drives itselfI would tend to agree with you. For the UK with so much traffic it would probably not be used very often? There is a increase in cost from the adaptive cruise control of about 1200 Euro, so I did not look for this initially. like the reasons you mention. But having now experienced this on some longer stretch of fairly deserted French motorways and must admit I like it very much. I would only use it as an aid on long trips, and will likely save me some cash from the speed camera location I always tend to forget?!?
