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.
