hmm... little harsh i think. hasn't cruise control stemmed from people's laziness to begin with? just like the adaptive cruise control and now automatic brakes because people don't know how to pay attention when they drive? I see what your saying but no one experiments and learns anything anymore.It's rare that I have any concern over safety but in this case having a homemade circuit that bybpasses the gas pedal just because you are cheap and a lazy driver seems like all around stupid and unsafe idea.
monitoring your speed in this case would require more attention than just setting a speed and forgetting about it. this isn't for driving through towns or anything like that. I never intended to compromise safety. It would have to disengage after hitting the brake or else i wouldn't use it... this is even assuming it would work to begin with. if i really wanted to compromise safety, i would just put a brick on the floor to hold the pedal in place.
