Driv­ing change in Saudi

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

FACE­BOOK and Twit­ter are be­ing used to urge women in Saudi Ara­bia to drive. Women aren’t al­lowed to travel there with­out a man’s per­mis­sion, but some Saudi women are urg­ing those who have an in­ter­na­tional driver’s li­cence to get be­hind the wheel from June 17. Saudi Prince Al­waleed bin Talal has spo­ken out against the ban on women driv­ers, say­ing they need more driv­ers so they can send home the 750,000 non-Saudis now em­ployed as driv­ers.
