Misspelling of Double Nickel. Can refer to Interstate Highway 55 or to a 55-mph speed limit.
"Thank god they raised the speed limit on the bypass from 55 to 65; that double nickle limit was making folks take the long way around."
"Ah, ten-four, Pig Pen, what's your twenty? Australia? Mercy sakes, ain't nothin' down there but Tasmanian devils and them Q-alla bears. What's that? No double-nickel limit? We gonna be there in a short, Pig Pen."
-C.W. McCall, "Round the World With the Rubber Duck"
