Driver’s Ten commandments

So the Vatican released the Driver’s Ten Commandments, I guess road rage is getting bad over there…

The “Drivers’ Ten Commandments,” as listed by the document, are:

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.

Do you think that driver’s will actually follow them? I personally like 5 and 9. If drivers would just follow 9, bike commuters will be much safer.

    Tonight on the ride home I was honked at, yelled at and spit on (by the occupants of two separate motor vehicles). The honking and yelling came from a Subaru with Rhode Island license plates. A few minutes later, the spitting was a full head to toe dousing by what I can only assume was another of our local, resident idiots with Massachusetts plates. By the time traffic allowed me to catch up with the spitter, I was stark, raving mad, and I began pounding on the passenger window trying to get at the moron who spit all over me. Tonight. I’m not so sure about the “liberating” experience of forgiveness. I’m just hoping for a second face to face opportunity with this moron.

    Dude! that totally sucks!! I find it funny that some idiotic drivers do not realize that we have the capability of catching up to them. As for myself, I carry pepper spray but I’ve never used it.
