Talking too slow????????

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 little 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 quite

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 sheepishly and thanked the
officer for pointing out her error.

"But before I let you go, ma'am, I have to everyone in this
car OK? These women seem awfully shaken, and they haven't muttered a
single peep this whole time," the officer says with concern.

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, Officer. We just got off
Route 119."

Don't forget 355!

Actually, someone I went to high school with tried using this excuse once to get out of a speeding ticket on route 83.
