Ten Commandments For Peace On Roads
LONDON: British drivers might be tempted by what the media has dubbed
"road rage" are being offered a Christian highway code to help them
turn the other cheek to aggressive behaviour.
The Christian Road Safety Association has published its 10 commandments
for peace on the roads, the Times reported yesterday.
It was concerned at the rise in incedents of raod rage on the highways.
The new 10 commandments for the raod are:
- Begin with a prayer.
- If you start late, arrive late.
- Alcohol is for the radiator, not the operator.
- If entry into the flow of traffic is faciliated by the coutesy of another
driver, wave in appreciation.
- If you have inadvertenly endangered the safe passage of another vehicle,
wave as an apology.
- Make it easy for aggresive opputunity snatchers to get ahead of you- far ahead.
- Drive so that the sudden appearance of a police patrol car is a pleasant sight.
- Give plenty of space to cars marked with dents.
- Never accelarate, and decelerate if advisable, when another car wishes to enter
- End every trip with a prayer of thanksgiving.
