Nuns caught speeding on way to see the Pope
Three nuns that were pulled over for speeding told the police that they were on their way to see the pope after they heard he had fallen at his holiday home. The car was caught speeding at an incredible 120mph and stunned officers were shocked to learn that a nun was driving.
When asked why they were speeding, the drive Sister Tavoletta (56) said they were going to see if the pope was alright after his fall.
Pope Benedict XVI had earlier fallen in the bathroom at his holiday home, chalet at Les Combes fracturing his wrist. A spokesman for the police said: “Hopefully Sister Tavoletta will be making sure she confesses her bad driving the next time she goes to confession. But in the meantime, she will have to pay the 375 Euro fine (around £325).”
Sister Tavoletta said she would appeal against the fine and the one month ban imposed by the police.
