Saudi lifts driving ban on women


#1

Obviously a long way to go on so many issues, but seems like a pretty important win. My colleague is Jordanian and it sounds like it’s a really emotional moment for her Saudi friends (in a good way).

Expect the number of traffic accidents involving women drivers will absolutely SOAR as a result of this :neutral_face:

JOKING! Great news obviously. Particularly liked this…

“I’m going to buy my dream car, a convertible Mustang, and it’s going to be black and yellow!”

This will hopefully improve the safety of the roads in Bahrain too.

Every Friday night, Saudis would come across the causeway. The husbands to drink and see prostitutes, and the wives to take the kids to the shopping malls. So the roads would have loads of big cars being driven by either drunk men, or women who had never learned how to drive properly. It was terrifying.

There’s a reality tv show right there.
