Sitting on the side of the road waiting to catch speeding drivers, A state trooper sees a car puttering along at 22 mph. He thinks To himself, “This driver is 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 elderly 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 going the exact speed limit. What seems to Be the problem?” The trooper 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 you go, Ma’am, I have to ask, is everyone in this car OK? These women seem Awfully shaken.”
“Oh, they’ll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 127!”
