Awake at the Wheel - The Pope's 10 Commandments

This is WAY too cool! The pope has administered 10 Commendments for the drivers of the world!! Too bad he didn't mention Blinkers, "Hand signals", and staying in your lane when turning onto a main two-lane intersection. Well, I guess these items are covered under #9 and #10. You can view the entire article here.

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 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, and an occasion
of sin.

6. Charitably convince the young and not so young not to drive when they are not
in a fitting condition to do so.

7. Support the families of accident victims.

8. Bring guilty motorists and their victims together, at the appropriate time, so
that they can undergo the liberating experience of forgiveness.

9. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party.

10. Feel responsible toward others.

I really liked this article. Especially since we just returned from Italy and the Pope's neighborhood consists of four-lanes of traffic driving down two-lanes of road. UNREAL.
