My sentiments exactly.  I may add I can't tell if I'm accelerating too slow
or too fast from a dead stop.

I use my cruise control at all speeds.  I believe it keeps me from
inadvertently driving too fast.  It's all too easy to creep up to 35 in a 30
mph zone.  I keep my foot near my brake pedal in case someone's pet crosses
the road and think I can stop sooner using this technique.

When I'm not using cc I'll wedge my foot a bit between the pedal and the
wall to keep my speed from drifting upwards.

I'm plagued by muscle cramps.  Trying to hold the gas pedal to maintain the
no-arrow display leads to a cramped ankle in about 30 seconds.  Cruise
really alleviates those cramps too, but it isn't quite as effective.  Had I
driven that mileage marathon a while back I'd probably be in a wheel chair
