Hm, I think this may vary from state to state. Here there is no minuimum. Those of you who do live where there is one--please chime in on how you think it works.
Minimum speed limits
In addition to the legally defined maximum speed, minimum speed limits may be applicable. Occasionally there are default minimum speed limits for certain types of roads, generally freeways.
Comparable to the common basic speed rule, most jurisdictions also have laws prohibiting speeds so low they are dangerous or obstruct the normal flow of traffic.

Bob, i really dont want to offend your opinions here, i dont know the full story, but, the family driving should have taken into consideration that there are cars in front, what if there had been a tail back, would the same situation not applied? would a complete standstill of traffic not have allowed them to have slowed down if they were following the rules of the road? The old lady was still moving, if it had been a tailback it would have been worse, think logic my friend, and please do not take offence at my opinions, none is meant.
