It would be nice above 60 mph.
Each interval increment is approximately.5 seconds.  A setting of 7 equates to a little over  300 feet at 60 mph which seems like a lot.  However, it takes about 1.5 seconds for the average person to recognize an event ahead, decide how to react and begin to execute their reaction.  This leaves about 2 seconds to stop for example.  The result is a car that takes about 150 feet to stop at 60 barely avoiding a rear end collision.  This supports the ability to opt for greater interval options for more cautious drivers.
Totally need this! In some speeds the maximum distance is not even enough to keep the minimum required distance to the vehicle in front (3 seconds where I live).
