myth buster -abanglong style
i’ve heard from various sources….
kalau u drive kat hiway; speed limit 110km/h . you can drive around 120 km/h sebab polis bagi some ‘kelonggaran’ between that 10 km/h difference.
kata mereka mereka itu – kalau bawak lebih 110 as long as jangan lebih dari 120 km/h u tak akan kena saman. polis bagi markah kesian kata mereka.
betul ka ?
source from a well known automaker -as for the speedometer – they actually configured it show about 5-6% faster than actuall speed.
membawa maksud – meter kereta anda di calibrate supaya menunjukkan kelajuan yang lebih tinggi daripada kelajuan sebenar kereta anda. its for obvious reason – safety and laws
i was a bit curios and decide to test its kesahihan.
as the gps navigator is almost 99% accurate; i use it as a benchmark. my lion has all four brand new tyres so it should show pretty accurate speed.
so; drive at certain speed – tengok meter and tengok screen navigator – mental noted
i tried and snap some pics
this is normal cruising speed kat hiways
singa tua ini masih gagah tau!
the navigator; capturing data from satellite registers my speed at about
i tried it at various speed and the results semuanya shows that our actuall speed (data from the navigator) is actually slower than speed showed by the meter/speedometer
i will try to get data using my other cars. and will update here…
* note – speed kills. ingatlah orang yang tersayang !
