The Pope doesn’t wear a seatbelt?

That’s what a German man is alleging in charges filed in his home country after Pope Benedict XVI’s visit there earlier this year. The man alleges that the pontiff was captured via media several times not wearing a seatbelt. I don’t know why, but I never thought the Popemobile had the need for seatbelts. Of course, this eyewitness video from World Youth Day in Madrid is inconclusive as to whether the Pope is indeed strapped in to his seat.
