2006 Honda Pilot VSA

Why does the VSA on my 2006 Honda Pilot come on when the car is driven in stop and go traffic? There is no problem on cool or rainy days. Has anyone else had similar issues with the VSA? Can the VSA be totally disabled? I don’t live drive in areas where it would be useful.

It can be disabled. There was a way listed on one of the pilot forums but it is involved and might make the car not able to pass emissions.
I test drove a 2009 with the VSA and found it pretty aggravating at 35-40 MPH, kicking in and out. I am sensitive to what my car does.
Apparently the same engine with VSA in the Honda Odyssey Minivan has generated less complaints.
