This wasn’t the speed limit

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a State Police Officer sees a car puttering along
at 22 MPH. 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 seat and three in the back – wide eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, says to
him, "Officer, I don’t understand, I was doing exactly the
speed limit! What seems to be the problem?"

"Ma’am," the officer replies, "You weren’t
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 says a bit 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,
Ma’am, I have to ask… Is everyone in this car ok? These women seem
awfully shaken and they haven’t muttered a single peep this whole
time." the officer asks.

"Oh, they’ll be alright in a minute, officer. We just
got off Route 119."
