"Pope Benedict XVI is being sued in Germany for violating German law by not wearing his seatbelt in the Popemobile during a visit there earlier this year. The fine for such a law violation is 2,500 euros (or maybe it’s zero euros if the euro becomes extinct). The suit was brought by a private citizen in Germany, so the issues are quite complicated. For one thing, it’s not clear whether only police can bring seat belt law cases or private citizens can as well." (12/31/11)
