Variable speed limit sign: sudden changes

Reported via mobile in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 11:54, Tue 3 August 2021

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later

Heading south on M42, variable speed limit signs appear to be changing for no specific reason causing sudden braking. A sign changed from 50 to 40 but then the next signs within 200 yards and already visible were at national speed limit. It was if a toddler had hacked the signs.
