Of Church and State Trooper?
-- Vatican City -- THOU shall not drive under the influence of alcohol. Thou shall respect speed limits. Thou shall not consider a car an object of personal glorification or use it as a place of sin.I'm a little surprised, with stuff like genocide in Darfur, the insane violence in Gaza and the rest of the middle east... the Pope was so focused on vehicular trespasses.
The Vatican took a break from strictly theological matters today to issue its own rules of the road, a compendium of dos and don'ts on the moral aspects of driving and motoring.
Praying while driving was encouraged.
Vatican City, the world's smallest sovereign state, doesn't have many of the problems listed in the document.I guess he's thinking globally.
It has about 1000 cars, the speed limit is 30km/h and one Vatican official said the last accident inside Vatican City's walls was about a year and a half ago, resulting in minor damage.
