I should think the women will be far safer drivers than the men. Less testosterone, less likely to participate in the racing cult that is doing its bit for Darwin.

Not in Saudi but when I took my driving test in the 1960's I was in a Hillman Husky with no heater. It was mid winter and bloody freezing. In those days you had to demonstrate hand signals and with the Windows wound down it was artic inside!

After quite a short distance the tester said ' yes your OK let's get back and wind that bloody window up'.

Pass!!

It obviously wouldn't work in Riyadh.....

I can not imagine the aftermath of the first multi-pile up involving all women The outcry will be a loud, "I told you so" from all the men. Then, when there is the first woman v man crash, and the man is obviously at fault, how will that play out? There are very interesting social times ahead.

Isn't the crux of the matter whether females will be allowed by their males to travel in cars without an approved male escort?

Enter the noddy "approved escort' that will appear on the back shelf.

Or equally, if their males allow them to drive the car with themselves in it. More than loss of face, loss of control.

What they don't have they will import and own you for the duration
Not surprising really. How the hell could he have recognised her without lifting all that garb off her face, unless of course he knew her shoe size.

Saudi women have been driving in Bahrain for many years, they are definately better drivers than Saudi men
