Maybe, but then I think the last one should have jumped up. Maybe the car going the other way wasn't far enough by the camera.

Now why would they show YOU how fast oncoming traffic is going?

More likely, the traffic behind the guy w/the camera is being clocked.

Around here the radar source is usually positioned before ya get to the display. That way ya have time to see YOUR speed.

Oncoming traffic speeds. FFS.

We've got one of those near my house that is aimed wrong or something and it does sometimes show traffic travelling the opposite direction. The cars need to have passed you and be behind you going the other way for it to pick them up.

Sure, that radar isn't accurate, it'll easily cover two lanes close up and more further out.

Grav gets me, I meant traffic going the other way *behind* me.
Also, radar tends to report the biggest thing it sees. We drive a tall Sprinter van, and I have seen it read my speed but not the small car coming up behind me and then passing me all while only reporting my speed.

The same thing happens to me all the time. Endless amusement for me, but I'm sooo easily amused anyway!

This screen grab is from a 6 minute video from GM on the all new 1982 Corvette. Probably meant for dealer's salesmen.
The picture shows one of the three guys paint without masks. I don't care if it's a downdraft booth.
A little further along they are doing another color. WTF?

Maybe he knew he was being filmed and let his vanity control his behavior more than it should?

There is three of them and a little further they are painting a different color the same way. Even if that was the case GM would be irresponsible in allowing it to be included in a widely distributed video with their name on it. That's handing OSHA proof that a big fine is warranted.

My maple trees don't have branches 18" off the ground, but they did when they were saplings.

Branches might or might not move on up, but tree crotches do.

I learned that from lookin' at m'tree.

Lower horizontal branches die, and fall off or become embedded as the trunk thickens. If multiple primarily vertical branches survive, they merge into one, starting at the bottom, and their crotch may move up as they get bigger, like the meeting point of scissor blades moves, even though the joint stays where it is.
