Know Your Signs

  1. There once was a police officer sitting in a speed trap
    on a county road. He was waiting for someone to fly by
    above the 55 mph speed limit. A car approached his
    radar traveling at 22 mph. The car slowly past and
    continued down the road. The officer thought about the
    car for a while. A car going that slowly could be as
    dangerous as one going 70 or 75.
    He pulled out onto the road and quickly caught up to the
    slow moving car. After they both stopped on the shoulder,
    he got out and walked up to the driver's window to find
    out why they were going so slow. Behind the steering
    wheel was a pleasant older woman with four other ladies
    clutching their purses in the back seat. The officer asked
    the woman why she was driving like she was.
    She responded by showing the officer the sign up ahead,
    "See, I wasn't speeding. I was going the speed limit," she
    explained. "Ma'am, that sign is not the speed limit sign,
    it's to mark County Road #22," responded the officer.
    "Oh, now I understand," she answered.
    The officer started walking back to his squad car but
    stopped when noticing the strange behavior of the ladies
    in the back seat. He leaned back into the window and asked
    "Are the ladies are OK? They haven't said a word and
    they're still clutching their purses". "Oh, they're all OK,"
    she answered. "We just exited off of County #119."

    Lets see... I'm near Rt 3 can you picture that???
    But to make up time I'm also near I-95 and RT 476 .

    But oddly enough, Rt 3 moves much faster than 476, 95 and 76 during my commute times.

    That is such a cute story. However, driving behind some elderly that do drive like that make me insane. LOL
