Saudi Women Excited as driving ban about to be lifted

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has announced the date on which women will be allowed to start driving in the Kingdom.

A government statement said that June, 24 would be the day on which the decades-long ban on women driving would finally be lifted.

The decision – announced last year – is one of the most headline-grabbing moves in the reform programme advocated by the Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman. Driving schools have been set up in a number of Saudi Arabian cities in preparation for women to take to the wheel.

On the other hand, this transformation has sent a chilling effect to some foreigners who are mostly working as drivers. Some of them, now feel their jobs are under threat as women are now taking over their wheels.
