Urgent Message from the Vatican*

The “Drivers’ Ten Commandments”
  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 neighbor 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'm not kidding. The Vatican issued these 'Road Rules' today. See my 'commandments' in the Comments Section.

1. Use your turn signal. (Jackass.)

2. If you know you are going to have to merge, do so in a timely fashion. (Speeding up to cut in front of me [especially on Oregon Road] will only cause me to speed up to prevent you from doing so, putting us both in a dangerous situation.)

3. Don't tailgate. (I admit I need to keep working on this as well, but my counselor says I'm making headway.)

4. Pay attention to the road. (If you can't do two things at once successfully, put the cell phone or mascara down.)

Are these the commandments that the Popemobile must follow?

Your commandments are much more in tune with today's society. And they are heck of a lot more funny.
