On the highway, I do most of my driving in L with CC. My right foot is over the brake, and my left hand is over the paddle.I like to try to predict high risk situations and hover my foot over the brake pedal, this is a habit. I cannot do this in L mode so it makes me uncomfortable in those situations. I'm not going to say its any safer or more dangerous than another guy using L, its just more comfortable for ME. You gottta figure out which works for you..
