poking around albany, ny and assuming that these are coming from
the skobbler iphone app, i suspect that the app authors are confused
about metric vs english maxspeed values. i put "maxspeed=48" on a
lot of these back before the wiki got modified to indicate that
"maxspeed=30 mph" was acceptable usage, and there are a number
of missing speed where i set the speed to 48 back then.
