The witnesses said....
Because the road along 4 km in this hill is believed have a push power. The car will run faster with high speed keep away the magnetic hill, although with zero gear position. There is a witnesses, he is a taxi driver. He drove his car for 6 years. He confess that the condition of the road that leads away from the city of Medina slightly uphill. Therefore, the influence of magnets on the vehicle was not felt. Just very hard pulled the vehicle. He had to move in first gear position. And the speed of the car around 15 up to 30 km per hour. While in this position is still strong in second gear. Driver believed that this is the influence of the magnet holding the car's movement.
The opposite direction when the car turned into the Medina, although the gear in neutral position. The speed of taxi car faster than before. Even just 3 km the speed of taxi shows the number of 120 km per hour.
