Friday thread because it happened on a Friday

A devout Jewish man drove dangerously on four major roads so he could reach his destination before sundown, a court has heard.

Mr Gross told police that because of his religion he was not allowed to drive after sunset on a Friday.

Really! Ever heard of parking up and getting a bus/train instead.

Another stupidity squarely placed on religion's shoulders.

Thank DoG he did not injure anyone! I guess this dude never heard of Goyim shel Shabbat...

As a special favor, I happily did my fair share of driving around, switching lights on/off, and so forth for my two religious Jewish friends when I lived in Tel Aviv - and hit the TLV clubs afterwards with my more numerous, non-religious Jewish friends

Where my mom grew up in Amsterdam, goys would switch on and off lights on shabbat and made some money with that (that was before the war, our great war :-( ). Luckily with modern tools that now is easier.

Still, get a taxi, train, bus!

I guess he can't push the button to open the bus door either.
In any case someone that values something else over lives should not be allowed to drive.
