I Kid You Not: The Ten Commandments of Driving

Ten Commandments of Car DrivingI. You shall not kill.

II. The 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 towards others.

Thank God the Vatican took the time out to release this one. I’ve just been a wreck driving my car around the past 10 years and now I have more sin guilt to deal with.


I guess Catholics can’t kill behind the wheel. This seems like common sense to most of us but does bring up problems when you crash.
