Default Joke on Speeding

Speed Limits

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 car 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 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 per hour!", the old woman says a bit
proudly.

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 smiled 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 okay? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven't muttered a
single peep this whole time.", the officer asks.
"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. We just got off Route 138."

[img]../images/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]That actually happened to my ex-boss. Bolivian immigrant that really "did" understand English but used ignorance as an excuse when it suited the situation. He was pulled over for doing 85 on I-90.[img]../images/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

A guy was tooling along on I-95 doing about 85 when he noticed a Florida State Trooper behind him with lights flashing and siren blaring. He continued on for about 5 miles before finally pulling over. The trooper asked him why he didn't stop sooner, and the guy replied "My wife ran away with a Florida trooper about five years ago, and I was afraid it was you, and you were trying to bring her back to me."
