Ten Commandments for Driving – Pope Benedict XI speaks

We already knew that Pope Benedict was a bit of a motorhead (and by all accounts loved his old VW Golf)

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:

  1. You shall not kill
  2. The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm
  3. Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you to deal with unforeseen events
  4. Be charitable and help your neighbour in need, especially victims of accidents
  5. Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination or an occasion for sin
  6. Charitably convince the young and not-so-young not to drive when they are not in a fit condition
  7. Support the families of accident victims
  8. Bring guilty motorists and their victims together so they can experience forgiveness
  9. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party
  10. Feel responsible towards others

More details from the Times.

Being well in with an omniscient being like God and living in a country that only measures half a mile across probably means that Pope Ben has no need for older drivers insurance, but if he ever does, he should give us a call on 08000 83 88 33.
