If you compare the green line with the "hairy" black one, you can see,
that the green is around where the black one has a *minimum*.

And the width of the hair is pretty much the "inaccuracy".

If I were calculate an average speed it would be about 5km/h more
than the reported speed (green). And btw, simple averaging affects
the dynamic of the curve.
