Know Your Signs

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
