(WSCR) German police don’t care who you are — you have to wear a seat belt.

Even if you’re the Pope.

According to this report, the Pope will receive a Notice To Appear from the German government for not wearing a seatbelt.

The report alleges: Video evidence would prove Benedict XVI was not wearing his seat belt “for more than hour”, the unnamed plaintiff’s lawyer Johannes Sundermann said.

He faced a fine of around £30 if convicted, Mr Sundermann added.

However, another German lawyer said: “The Pope is head of state of the Vatican, so it is highly likely he will be granted diplomatic immunity.”
