Highway 26

One night a police officer noticed a car that was traveling very slowly down the highway. When he pulled it over the driver asked, “What did I do wrong, officer?”

“You were going 26 miles per hour on a major highway. There is a law against that,” the officer replied. “You have to go at least 50 miles per hour.”

“But when I merged onto the highway, the sign said 26!” explained the driver.


The officer laughed and said, “That’s because 26 is the name of the highway, not the speed limit!”

The driver leaned back in her seat, baffled, and the officer noticed another woman, extremely pale, sitting beside her. “What happened to her?” asked the officer.

“I’m not sure, but she’s been like that ever since we got off of Highway 160.”
