What does the Torah teach us about driving an automobile? And what portion of frum drivers observe these mitzvohs?April 12, 2016 11:24 pm at 11:24 pm #1146184
Not to kill another.
Not to injure another.
Not to do damage to another.
Most frum drives observe these mitzvohs.April 12, 2016 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1146185ChortkovParticipant
Not to speed.
Most frum drivers don’t observe this mitzvoh.April 12, 2016 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #1146186☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Most drivers in total don’t observe the “mitzvah” of not speeding, depending in how literally you take the speed limit.
To answer the OP, there are no specific mitzvos which apply to the automobile, but many can be done with help from or relating to the automobile, and many aveiros can be violated with help from or relating to the automobile.April 13, 2016 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1146187zahavasdadParticipant
One can drive for tomche Shabbos and deliver food for a Mitzvah.April 13, 2016 12:52 am at 12:52 am #1146188Bored_on_the_JobParticipant
Dont cause someone else pain.
Steal their parking spot
cut them off
park in their driveway
double park and cause congestion
lean on your horn as soon as the light turns green
You get my idea….
Some frum ppl keep this mitzva
while unfortunately a lot lack this perspectiveApril 13, 2016 1:33 am at 1:33 am #1146189☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Zahavasdad, or drive to a Hatzolah call and save a life, or to the hospital to visit a sick person, or to shul to daven or to the bais medrash to learn, or to the store to buy matzah for Pesach, etc.April 13, 2016 1:50 am at 1:50 am #1146190zahavasdadParticipant
Honking someone as soon as the light turns green is not an averirah, might be a little impatient, but its not an averorahApril 13, 2016 2:23 am at 2:23 am #1146191yehudayonaParticipant
So that was you behind me, ZD.April 13, 2016 2:56 am at 2:56 am #1146192
Annoying someone is an aveira.April 13, 2016 3:12 am at 3:12 am #1146193Bored_on_the_JobParticipant
yup most ppl dont enjoy getting honked at.
Also who said being impatient is not an aveirah.
I would think that impatience is a form of ka’as (anger).
When you have feelings of impatience you are annoyed, you are angry.
Chazal have very disparaging things to say about ppl who become angry.
Even if you disagree with my above speculation, most of the time the guy doing the honking is pretty angry at the person in front of him.April 13, 2016 4:54 am at 4:54 am #1146194
B”H I have one less thing to worry about. It’s been ages since I had a car with a working horn (gasp). And I live in NYC (gasp again).
And to all other cars unfortunate enough to get in back of me, I say the pasuk ???? ??? ????? ?? ????.April 13, 2016 5:26 am at 5:26 am #1146195Mashiach AgentMember

What does the Torah tell us about texting while driving? Or texting at a stop-light during rush hour when every second counts and the texter (and the 17 cars behind him/her) does not look up and notice that the light has turned to green until I honk at him/her?
If you speed but don’t kill anyone, have you breached a mitzvah? If so, which one?
