An older gentleman was driving along the Toowoomba Connection Road at 21km/h, never going any faster or slower. A police officer received a call about the driver at the station and travelled along the road behind him, observing, before pulling him over.

Before the officer could even get to the car, the man was saying, “I was not speeding, the speed limit is 21km/h and that is exactly what I was doing. I was not speeding.”

The police officer said, “I didn’t pull you over for speeding. I pulled you over for going too slow.”

“But the sign said 21,” the man said.

The police officer shook his head and explained that the man was on the A21.

As the gentleman shook his head, the officer noticed that there were three older ladies in the back seat of the car. Each of them was sitting with their mouth open, a line of saliva running down their chin. Their eyes were wide and their faces were pale. Their hair was unruly.

The police officer leaned towards the man and said in a whisper, “What’s the story with those ladies?”

“Well,” said the man, “we’ve just come off the A139.”
