International Women's Day 8th March...and Saudi (women) drivers

Did everyone on JB here miss IWD? Not even our own voracious ORAC posted anything about it.

It's a huge and important subject, but before the Saudis let their women drive, I think it would be useful for us westerners to advise the Saudis just what they're letting themselves in for should they eventually be cajoled into allowing women drivers...?!

For a start, I'd suggest that all interior mirrors be removed from cars driven by women. I agree, it's not a panacea, but it's a start...

Self- parking car couple with an efficient self-guidance (for the car) system!

Traffic lights go red:

Man: Stops.
Woman: Stops, adjusts rear-view mirror, applies lipstick, removes seat-belt and goes through contortions grabbing the dummy off the back-seat floor for baby, goes back to applying lipstick, answers phone...

(Based on real-life events)
