Vatican, Apr. 25, 2007 (CWNews.com) – Pope Benedict XVI (bio – news) called attention to the UN-designated "Road Safety Week" during his regular weekly audience on April 25.
At the conclusion of his audience the Pope said that a "decent sense of responsibility for one’s neighbors" should encourage careful driving and respect for the rules of the road. He said that it is particularly important for young people to absorb this message.
This was obviously in response to this incident.
