Thou Shalt Not Drive Like a Maniac

The Vatican released the Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road, which includes the Ten Commandments for motorists to live by.

They are...

I. You shall not kill

II. Thy road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm

III. Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you deal with unforeseen events

IV. Be charitable and help your neighbour in need, especially victims of accidents

V. Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination, and an occasion of sin

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

VII. Support the families of accident victims

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

IX. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party

X. Feel responsible toward others

Now, how many have I broken?
