A couple of times in the last month or so, I’ve been clocked going 90 near Crowell Park heading toward Green Street. Impressive for an old Honda starting at zero mph at the Cedar Street turn, eh?
As I say, I was clocked going that speed. I wasn’t going that fast, of course.
Twice now I’ve seen the speed detector do an odd thing. As you approach at a normal speed, the reading suddenly and rapidly rises: “Your speed is 40, 50, 70, 90... Slow Down!” Then it resets itself.
It happens quickly, in a matter of seconds.
False readings are confusing to drivers. The first time it happened I checked to see if I was somehow speeding up dramatically. Nope.
My guess is that this has something to do with cold temperatures, ice and snow. Perhaps there is a short.
Anyone else seen this happen?
