VIDEO: Saudi women in drivers’ seats not only in cars, but motorcycles as well
A scene that no one could have imagined several months ago could have even expected to happen: Saudi women training to ride motorcycles in public.
Saudi women will officially begin driving after midnight when the clock turns on Sunday, June 24, when the kingdom lifts its decades-old driving ban.
Traffic departments have begun implementing carefully planned procedures in preparation for the influx of cars expected to be on the roads. There is currently a 500 to 900 riyal imposed on women who drive before the ban is officially lifted.
