Anyway, back on topic. ddenboer, if you didn't see the reduced regen line then my bet is on a traction issue. Perhaps the rear wheels were on a bit of road paint, damp section, or bumpy area. If regen kicks in but the rear tires lose grip it will decrease regen to allow the tires to regain traction.

This was around 7:45am, and outside temp was 48. Car was plugged and charging 15 minutes prior, and heat was on for around 10 minutes to warm up to the back seats for the kids (because after we start driving and I turn the heat off, they need as much as they can get). No regen dotted lines. No reduced power dotted lines. Standard charge, showing 241 miles when we drove off.
Traffic was typical 101 traffic -- no one is doing the speed limit -- most are 70-80 and braking/accelerating constantly until our 4th lane gets added after Cochrane Rd.
Anyway... It has not happened since (and I hope it doesn't). It was just a very odd feeling that made it necessary to hit the brake to avoid collision (way too many crazy drivers on 101 on a daily basis).
and by "scary", you mean "not scary", right?

I've never had the dotted line limit regen more than that. Perhaps after a range charge? Perhaps in much colder weather?

I take "Electro", my amazing Model S, to the train station: yes, it's a station wagon
