You're Grounded

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

Homer was impatiently waiting for his son Ed to come home. Ed had been caught speeding by the police just last week, and had been warned against doing it again. Just as Homer saw the car come up the driveway, he went outside. "Looks like you made it home awful quickly tonight," said Homer.

"Come on dad, I wasn't speeding," replied Ed.

"I'm not sure I believe you," said Homer. "Leave the car on and move over so I can get in. We are going for a ride."

When they returned home, Ed went straight up to his room, grounded for the next 2 weeks.

How did Homer know he was speeding?
