    I find having adaptive cruise control makes me less angry. I’ve just stopped caring if the car in front is going 2-3 mph slower than I want to travel at. I’ll pass if there’s room and if my turn is coming up I’ll just pace behind them. I find I usually get stopped at the same lights as everybody anyway so it doesn’t matter.

      Oh, yeah, and it’s great for that.

      The folks consistently going 2-3 mph slower than I want to go kind of have my respect. They have their own thing going.

      But as my comment states, it’s the folks who vary ±20mph to maintain rolling roadblocks that I find so annoying.

      I hate using it in medium to heavy traffic since the relative speed of who ever is in front of me and how much space is constantly changing. Even putting along exactly at the speed limit, you’ll still hit trucks and slow weirdos and people forgetting what exit they’re close to.

      Not so much about comfort, but I can get 3-4mpg more by driving manually and planning my speed for multiple lanes and traffic patterns. If you keep your speed highly consistent, accelerate carefully, and let your speed wander down when going up hill, you can save even more, but some of that becomes annoying to other drivers.
