Austrian Pastafarians Can Now Drive
An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-license photo wearing a pasta strainer as “religious headgear”.
Niko Alm first applied for the license three years ago after reading that headgear was allowed in official pictures only for confessional reasons.
Mr Alm said the sieve was a requirement of his religion, pastafarianism.
The Austrian authorities required him to obtain a doctor’s certificate that he was “psychologically fit” to drive.
