Cruise control must only be used where road conditions permit driving at a constant speed. Do not use it on congested roads or when weather and road conditions are poor. The driver must still remain attentive and in complete control of the vehicle. You are recommended to keep your feet within range of the pedals. To avoid any interference with the pedals:

- ensure that any over-mats are correctly fitted,
- never superimpose one overmat on another.
