This seems totally contrary to the design intent of VR. It is designed to damp out small movements of the photographer's hands, not the ground he or she's standing on (with the exception of lenses that have an Active VR setting, which is indeed designed for moving platforms).

For the most part I leave VR on unless I'm certain that I will be shooting above 1/focal length shutter speeds. But then I do a lot of available light shooting.

I use VR if the ground is moving or the car, or the plane and even a helicopter (Aerials).

When the camera shakes or moves, I will OFTEN use VR ...successfully!
