Quite dangerous when I think about it, but I was driving down the highway near my house, and when I hit the brake to disengage the cruise control, it didn't self cancel. It happened twice to me now, and kinda freaky. The second time I really started to worry as I came into traffic and the car was still wanting to drive. It took a few seconds for it to be stopped by hitting the Cancel Button on the steering wheel.

Thoughts?
