Cruise Control Ban

Cruise control outlawed: This seems like a really silly idea to me.

Cruise control has been outlawed on stretches of busy Belgian motorways.

Motorists face on-the-spot fines of 50 euros for ignoring the ban and could have to pay up to 1,375 euros if their case is brought to court by the Belgian police.

The ban is the first in Europe and follows a series of accidents on the country’s motorways.
