How Slow Can You Go?

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 driver over.

Approaching the car, he notices that there are five little 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 an hour!" the old woman says quite 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 grinned sheepishly and thanked the officer for
pointing out her error.

"But before I let you go, ma'am, I have to everyone in this car OK?
These women seem awfully shaken, and they haven't muttered a single peep this
whole time," the officer says with concern.

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute, Officer. We just got off Route 119."

That must explain why drivers drive the way they do on Hwy.101! Thanks for sharing a great laugh.

Thumbs up How slow can you go?

Great story Christi, LOL
I can relate to the Portland people too. Have a son and brother in law there. Never towed our tailer there yet. I would probably give myself a full week in each direction from Los Angeles area. But Oregon is really one the most beautiful areas in America.
