Speed Limit

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeders, a State Policeman
sees a car puttering along at 22 miles per hour. He thinks to himself, This
driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!

So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over. Approaching the car, he
notices that there are five old ladies – two in the front and three in the back
of the car – wide-eyed and white as ghosts.

The driver obviously confused, says to him, Officer, I dont understand, I was
doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?

Maam, the officer replies, you werent speeding, but you should know that
driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers.

Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly –
twenty-two miles an hour, the old woman said proudly.

The State Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that 22
was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned
and thanked the officer for pointing out her error.

But before I let you go, Maam, the officer says, I have to ask… Is
everyone in this car okay? These women seem awfully shaken and they havent
muttered a single peep this whole time.

Oh, theyll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 119.
