Sitting on the side of the road waiting to catch speeding drivers, a state trooper saw a car puttering along at 22 mph. He thought to himself, "This driver is as dangerous as a speeder!"
So he turned on his lights and pulled over the driver. Approaching the car, he noticed that inside the car there were five elderly ladies - two in the front seat and three in the back, wide-eyed and white as ghosts.
The driver, obviously confused, said 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, explained 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 you, is everyone in this car okay? These women seem awfully shaken."
"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 127."
