False vehicle parked/started notifications

I’ve noticed that in heavy traffic jams, long waits at traffic lights, or intersections, our Automatic Pros will send a false Vehicle Parked/started notification and then of course break up what is a single trip into multiples. There are a couple of spots on my and my wife’s commutes that this happens repeatadly. Is this intended behavior? It’s pretty annoying and makes data gathered from “trips” much less meaningful. I would have assumed that the actual starting/stopping of a vehicle indicated the status but that doesn’t seem to be reality in our two vehicles.

I also have this problem. A single trip gets split up to dozens of small trips. The small trips do not even start where the last one ended. Brand new device.
