Cruising is a social activity that primarily consists of driving a car. Cruising can be an expression of the freedom of possessing a driver’s license. Cruising is distinguished from regular driving by the social and recreational nature of the activity, which characterized by an impulsively random, often aimless course. A popular route is often the focus of cruising. “Cruise nights” are evenings during which cars drive slowly, bumper-to-bumper, through small towns.
