USA Speed Limits
A State Police Officer was waiting on the side of the highway when he
spotted a car creeping along at 22 MPH. "That driver is just as dangerous as
a speeder!" he says to his partner. Lets turn on the blues and pull
over the driver.
Approaching the car, he sees five old ladies inside - two in the front
seat and three in the back, and they're 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
"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
"Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit
exactly. Twenty two miles an hour!" the old woman says a bit proudly. "Look,
the sign is right there!"
The State Police officer looks around and there is a "22" sign. The
officer chuckles to himself. "That's the route number, not the speed limit,"
he explains, still amused.
"Oh," the woman says, a little embarrassed. "Thanks for pointing that

Motorists made insurance claims last year for everything from a frozen squirrel crashing through a car windscreen to a cow jumping on a quad bike, it was revealed last week in The Scotsman newspaper.
Freak incidents involving animals topped the list of the most bizarre claims made to insurer Norwich Union in 2005, with food-related prangs in second place. One unlucky driver claimed to be unable to slow down
because a potato was lodged behind the brake pedal, while another said a passing vehicle was damaged by a frozen kebab which flew out of an open car door.
Sally Leeman, of Norwich Union, said: 'We see a
lot of strange claims but we were surprised at how many involved animals and food, of all things.'
