Thou Shalt Not Pass Go

4:10 PM -- Come judgment day, you may have to present your driving record at the pearly gates. The Associated Press has the story:

    The Vatican on Tuesday issued a set of "Ten Commandments" for drivers, telling motorists not to kill, not to drink and drive, and to help fellow travelers in case of accidents.

    An unusual document from the Vatican's office for migrants and itinerant people also warned that cars can be "an occasion of sin" — particularly when they are used for dangerous passing or for prostitution.

OK so no prostitutes and no changing lanes without a signal. Got it.

    It urged motorists to obey traffic regulations, drive with a moral sense, and to pray when behind the wheel.

Presumably without getting on our knees. Lord, let's hope so!

    The document, "Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road," extols the benefits of driving — family outings, getting the sick to the hospital, allowing people to see other cultures.

And my personal fave -- getting the opportunity to flip someone off and then speed away. Triumph!

re: Thou Shalt Not Pass Go I suppose it's easy to be self-righteous about driving when you're squired about in a Mercedes M-Class SUV Popemobile.

re: Thou Shalt Not Pass Go I guess all of us New York drivers can officially forget Heaven.
