Full Story

VATICAN CITY - 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”

You’re not supposed to stick your arms out of a moving vehicle, that’s dangerous.  I guess the Vatican is trying to drum up business for the prosthetic limb manufacturers. raspberry

Evidently the Hare Club for Men has infiltrated the Papal safety council.

So the Vatican figured we were doing so well with the original ten commandments that we need ten more tied specifically to driving?

Or were we doing such a bad job with the original ten they decided to dumb things down?  Give us something that we can handle a little easier.  Then when we get these figured out and handled regularly they can get us ramped back up to the original ten.

Ferrari: It ain’t a sin to buy the car

When it comes to luxury sports cars, Ferrari begs to differ with the Pope.

The Vatican issued a document listing its rules of the road, including one warning against using cars “as a means for outshining other people and arousing a feeling of envy”.

Ferrari general manager Amedeo Felisa acknowledged the Vatican’s concern that some drivers could use the cars as status symbols, but he said most people bought Ferraris for the love of driving.

“Unless having fun has become a sin, I don’t believe it (to be wrong),” Mr Felisa told Reuters at an event celebrating Ferrari’s 60th anniversary in its hometown south-east of Milan.

A unit of Italy’s Fiat, Ferrari makes some of the world’s most exclusive cars, each worth more than 100,000 euros.

Mr Felisa was convinced that buying a Ferrari was not a sin.

“I hope not - but you should commit at least one from time to time,” he said.
