But now he’s set to make the roads a safer place, by revealing a new set of commandments (more like guidelines, maybe) from the Almighty, designed to make our roads a more godly place.
He’s also suggested that priests should say Mass at service stations and in roadside chapels.
Those Commandments in full:
- You shall not kill
- The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm
- Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you to deal with unforeseen events
- Be charitable and help your neighbour in need, especially victims of accidents
- Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination or an occasion for sin
- Charitably convince the young and not-so-young not to drive when they are not in a fit condition
- Support the families of accident victims
- Bring guilty motorists and their victims together so they can experience forgiveness
- On the road, protect the more vulnerable party
- Feel responsible towards others
