In most drivers’ lives, traffic is an inevitability. For commuters, that inevitability happens on a daily basis. However, the expected nature of traffic does not make the traffic any less annoying. In fact, drivers who sit in heavy traffic regularly demonstrate negative emotional health effects—including stress and aggression—that are directly related to the traffic. The traffic in San Diego County is some of the worst traffic in the world.

San Diego County commuters spend an average of almost 70 hours per year stuck in traffic. The average resident of San Diego County spends more than 10% of their time driving sitting in traffic.

Top Features of Chevrolet’s Super Cruise System
Chevrolet’s Super Cruise driving system is a Level 2 semi-autonomous driving system. Super Cruise qualifies as a Level 2 system because it enables your vehicle to brake and accelerate on its own as well as drive straight and stay in its correct lane without driver intervention. These capabilities allow for hands-free driving over hundreds of thousands of miles of highway throughout North America.
Super Cruise has every official highway in the United States pre-mapped out and is able to be used while you are driving along any of these highway stretches—highways are defined by Super Cruise as highways that feature an off-ramp and an on-ramp.
When enabled, Super Cruise uses real-time cameras, sensors, GPS, and LiDAR precision map data to virtually drive your vehicle for you on compatible roads. It is able to slow your vehicle down and speed it up in response to traffic conditions, bring your vehicle to a complete stop when necessary, and keep your vehicle centered in its proper lane even around tight curves—without any driver intervention. Super Cruise even enables your vehicle to make autonomous lane changes. Just flick your turn signal on while Super Cruise is enabled, and the semi-autonomous driving system will perform a single lane change in your desired direction as soon as it is safe to do so.
The Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system from Chevrolet keeps you, your passengers, and other drivers and passengers on the road safe with its built-in feature that prevents distracted driving. All Chevrolet vehicles with the Super Cruise driving system come equipped with a built-in, front-facing camera that tracks drivers’ eye movements. If your eyes move away from the road for too long, the Super Cruise driving system will automatically disable itself so that you have to take full control of your vehicle.
This anti-distracted driving feature on the Chevy Bolt EUV prevents drivers from sleeping, texting, sitting in the backseat, or being otherwise away from the wheel or distracted without looking at the road ahead of them while Super Cruise is enabled in their vehicle. Also, although Super Cruise’s anti-distracted driving feature prevents drivers from looking away from the road for too long, this feature does not require drivers to keep their hands on the steering wheel while Super Cruise is enabled.
Even if you don’t sit in traffic for hours every day of your life, the Chevrolet Super Cruise system that’s on the Chevy Bolt EUV is still a revolutionary technology that can help take the stress out of your everyday driving.
