“Saudi Arabia’s King Salman issues an order allowing women to be given driving licences”
See Saudi women ‘given right to drive’Is it April 1? Nope. Is this some Fake News? I hope not. It’s way past time Saudi women were allowed to drive a motor vehicle. Having to wait on Hubby or some son or uncle to do the job is just silly. I’ve seen a lot of crazy driving in Saudi Arabia. I doubt the women could do any worse. I witnessed several “Riyadh turn”s where someone punches it when the light turns green and hopes he can make across several lanes of traffic before the others get off the line. I witnessed a lot of really expensive automobiles trashed near intersections. Then there was “road rage” or standoffs with neither driver willing to change course. Then there were fiery wrecks by the highway with a tanker truck on one side and an passenger car on the other. The men were rarely willing to give the right of way or wait until there was room to pass. People died because men drove like idiots. Go women!
As much as this looks like progress, there’s still a lot of segregation in Saudi Arabia. I doubt there will ever be a queen, for instance, in my lifetime. There should be, someone to deal properly with the neighbours.
