Really, Google?

I got to the CalTrain station this morning in time to catch the 7:25 train so that I could get into work a little early. At 7:27, the signs suddenly said that the train was delayed 12 minutes. I thought the prospects for making up that time in route and still catching the 8 AM shuttle bus were dim, so I decided to check Google Maps on the phone to see what traffic conditions were like.

Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't equate a "green" traffic status with 10 mi/hr.
