Connie drives in the mountains and discovered that when she hits the brakes, her radio reception improves. It also flashes the brake lights and disengages the cruise control. Are these things at all related? And can she fix anything under the hood to boost reception? Baseball games are riding on Tom and Ray's answer.

Tom and Ray say he should be fine as long as the area isn't hilly. Read their full recommendation (and find out why this includes doubling up on the Depends) right here.

My gentleman friend and I have a steak dinner bet riding on your answer to this question. I say using the cruise control on our highway trips saves gas. It saves gas because I am not bopping between different speeds...
