The Speed Limit....

A Police Officer was waiting along the side of a highway waiting to
catch speeding drivers. There weren't as many violators this day as
usual. The State Police Officer sees an old 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

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 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

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
with concern.

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