Another email from a friend

Keeping The Speed Limit!
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 if everyone in this car is OK? These women seem awfully shaken."

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, officer. We just got off Route 127."

This is a funny one. Poor old folks get taken for a ride all the time.

I've seen this before but it still gives me a chuckle.

This is funny and I would be shook up going that fast (127).
