Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a Police Officer sees a car puttering along at 22 KPH. Says he 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 much 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... I always do... Twenty-two kilometres an hour!" the old woman says a bit proudly.
The Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that 22 is the highway number, not the speed limit.
"OH!",says the woman a bit embarrassed, she grins and thanks the officer for pointing out her error.
"Oh just one more thing before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask.. Is everyone in this car OK? These women seem awfully shaken, and I haven't heard a peep from them this whole time." the officer asks.
"Oh, they'll be all right in a few minutes officer, it's only that we just got off Highway 189 !! "
