Commandments for Driving

This one looks like a trick, but CNN.com is peddling it, so I'll take it as real. The Vatican has released the Ten Commandments of driving. It's in a document called "Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road." My favorite new Commandment is "On the road, protect the more vulnerable party." Not sure about the incentive compatibility of that one.

One small issue: If the (original) Ten Commandments were given to Moses from God on Mount Sinai, how does the Church fit into the whole ordeal of being God? Isn't God the only one in a position to decree Commandments? I'm not even going to go down that path-- but I will say my co-blogger knows a lot more about that stuff than I claim to.
