I WAS DRIVING MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS USING CRUISE CONTROL ON A HIGHWAY. I DISENGAGED CRUISE CONTROL TO SLOW DOWN AS A VEHICLE ENTERED THE HIGHWAY IN FRONT OF ME. ONCE THE SECOND VEHICLE HAD ACCELERATED AHEAD, I RE-ENGAGED CRUISE CONTROL AT MY DESIRED SPEED. THE CRUISE CONTROL ENGAGED, BUT CONTINUED ACCELERATION, AS IF I WAS ACTIVATING THE CRUISE CONTROL MECHANISM'S ACCELERATE "PADDLE", WHICH I WAS NOT ACTUALLY DOING. I IMMEDIATELY DIS-ENGAGED CRUISE CONTROL, SLOWED TO MY DESIRED SPEED, AND RE-ENGAGED CRUISE CONTROL. AT THIS POINT, THE CRUISE CONTROL RESUMED PROPER OPERATION AND I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE AT MY SELECTED SPEED.
