I am a regular user of cruise control while driving, both for ease and felt it seemed more fuel efficient.I engage it at any opportunity where the speed is over 60 KM/HR and traffic is flowing. 

I do however keep coming across failed cruise control instances on the roads. In fact, I  came across the following advice in Gulf News after the last incident locally:

I wonder what is your view about this. Do many people use cruise control?

There are instance like that but I am sure that can be totally avoided if the person is calm and aware of his surroundings

I use cruise control pretty much all the time, it's less stressful for following speed limits and error free to not to get speeding ticket.

I use cruise control on highway only when the traffic is flowing. I wouldn't worry about cruise control failure. If you see all the incidents with cruise control failure it happens only with Emarati Nationals and luckily they haven't given me nationality yet. So no chances of cruise control failing on me.

Couple of years ago I read a report in which they mentioned that the reason for that particular incident of cruise control failure was unauthorized modification done by the owner of the car from unauthorized worshop. I'm not aware as what modification was done on it which caused CC to malfunction.

      I have always wondered why Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)  is not a compulsory requirement in all cars. None of my cars ( Pardo 2014 and Camry 2006)  has it, although I am aware the more expensive cars do have them ( Mercs.)  Most people will state that it is the cost that prevents it but I would like to know if it is more expensive than the air-bags installed in most cars ? I can only assume that the front sensing system may be expensive .
      While sitting next to new drivers ( like my son and daughter) the first thing that I have to watch out for is the judgement of the braking distance. A large percentage of accidents on our roads are due to this misjudgment . With high speed urban driving even an experienced driver may have faced emergency braking scenarios ( I have). 
      I believe that electronic sensors like most electronic components are getting cheaper so why the delay in this option. Even if it may have some negatives consequences , it should be available in all cars even if it is has optional activation switch.
      Perhaps those who have ACC or know the cost can comment about the hurdle that stops the manufacturers from installing this life saving device.

      A very interesting video demonstrating why we need to maintain a speed limit of 30kmph in Residential areas. Must watch.

      I did a trip from abu dhabi to al ain and was trying different speeds to see which gave me the best mileage. Mine is 3.8 LWB 2008 model. The car was empty and just me driving.
      Scenario 1: driving at 90km/h gave me 9.3km/l 
      Scenario 2: driving at 110 km/h gave me 8.9km/l
      Any comments on whether these numbers are good or bad and I will check the spark plugs, filter and tyre pressure and oil.
      What is the ideal tyre pressure for city driving? 35 psi?

      Just read today morning that all cars in UAE will have below efficiency rating mandatory from 2017. This new move seems very good for educating consumer before buying the vehicle, however I am not understanding the need of creating 5 levels of rating within just 1 L/100 km (1.71 km/liter) difference.
      All cars that I have ever own falls much below the "Very Poor" rating.
      http://gulfnews.com/news/uae/transport/cars-in-uae-to-have-fuel-efficiency-rating-next-year-1.1678219
      14.2 km/liter (7.04 L/100 km) = Very Good 13.6 km/liter (7.35 L/100 km) = Good  13 km/liter (7.69 L/100 km) = Average  12.5 km/liter (8 L/100 km) = Poor  12.49 km/liter (8.006 L/100 km) = Very Poor
