Speed Limiter - Cruse Control

I have heard that some cars have cruse control that you can set so it won't
allow you to go over the speed limit.
For example you can set it at 30 mph and the car will stop you from going
over that speed in city driving.

Does anyone know what cars this is avaible on?

It was certainly a feature on the Peugeot 407 I borrowed for a couple
of weeks over the summer.

Had something like this on a 89 Cougar. You could set it and it would buzz
if you went over. Never used it.....

The New Focus has that feature (it's optional).

Every car with cruise. However, they all allow you to go faster if you
press the accelerator. But will come back to the preset speed when you
release it.

It was on some Renault (Megane?) I had the other day. Choice of cruise control
- which almost does the same thing - and a limiter, which allows you to drive
about normally but not above the set speed.

Be warned, though, cruise control on my other car does not alter the speed you
set, but when going downhill, it only gives engine braking. So you can set 30
mph as a cruise speed, and the fancy computer will only be able to keep to this
speed if, in the gear you have selected, engine braking can keep it.

Mercedes "SpeedTronic" option, Renault Laguna. They're the ones that spring
to mind
