It just may be your average speed. If you are stopped, the time is running, and your speed is 0. If your driving to the highway for 15 minutes at say and average of 10 MPH for the start and stop traffic, you have 15 minutes of 10 MPH traffic to overcome. Once your on the highway and you get stuck behind that white Toyota with a headless driver going 35 in the fast lane, your average speed will be affected. If your on the highway going 80 MPH and you want to know your fast average speed, reset your speed to 0, then you will have your average speed on the highway at highway speed. Once you slow down or stop for a pit stop or gas, your average speed will also go down. I drove 45 miles at speeds above 60 MPH, and when I got to my destination, my average speed was 35 MPH due to getting gas, driving to my house (5 miles) and then to the freeway, 10 minutes at stop and go traffic. I drove from the LA area to Utah going between 65 to 79 MPH for 6 hours and averaged just about 60 MPH due to slow traffic in the LA/Riverside and LV areas.
