This happens with a lot of programs. The solution is to not time travel.

This is not true for every country. In my country (Italy) and also in other countries sometimes we change the legal working hours and generally it changes automatically on many systems. This is only an example and in general I think that speed calculation should not depend on the system date and time...

But speed calculations must depend on a difference in time. A lot of other applications have this "problem" as well. If you have a better way to calculate speeds I'm all ears.

Not so much IMHO. You could use alarm() function as well, and get independent from the date/time. You need to set an alarm every second, and use a callback function to update the calculation.

That definitely is not worth the effort.
