Driving on the Highway

A highway patrol officer noticed a car driving 40 mph on the freeway. He pulled the car over and noticed the driver and the other three women in the car were in their 80s or 90s.

“Ma’am, it’s against the law to drive 40 mph on the freeway.”

“But officer, the sign said 40.”

“No ma’am, that’s the freeway number, not the speed limit. You’re on Hwy 40.”

“Oh” she replied sheepishly.

The officer then noticed that all the other women’s faces were ashen white and their eyes were open wide with fear.

“What is wrong with your passengers?” he asked.

“Well Sir, we just got off the 101.”
