The southern German city of Freiburg dropped their charges against the pontiff for riding in his popemobile without a seatbelt. The city figured that, although a requirement, since the street was closed to the traffic, the law didn't apply in his case.
Attorney Christian Sundermann had filed the complaint on behalf of an unnamed German resident of Dortmund. Freiburg was Benedict?s last stop during his September visit to his native Germany.
The unnamed plaintiff argued that the pope was seen several times during the visit without a seat belt. The complaint offered several eyewitnesses, including the archbishop of Freiburg, the head of the German Conference of Bishops and the premier of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
Germans love their bureaucracy.
