I have adaptive cruise control on my Honda Ridgeline and I absolutely love it. I don't condone this but theoretically while driving long distances one can text freely on their phone and not worry about slamming into the car in front of them since the brakes will automatically be activated when getting too close. And with the lane assist feature, it helps you stay in your lane and makes texting a dream. Theoretically of course. Not saying that I would do that, but some people might.
