I am from India, but I have been living in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.
I am married and I have daughters. We don't have a driver - I drive them about myself. This works fine and the women in my family do not want to drive.
In the interests of safety and security, I don't want women driving in Saudi Arabia
Women should not be allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia. If this happens, there will be more crime, accidents and disorder.
There will be more accidents because of the increase in traffic. However, the government is preparing for more traffic by building new roads and new overhead bridges.
If Saudi Arabia allows women to drive, there will have to be more law-enforcement officers in and around the cities.
There would also have to be more night patrols throughout the kingdom. There would also have to be women-only garages and service centres.
It will mean more social problems in the future.
Maybe a few women do want to drive, but this is not really a big issue.
In the interests of safety and security - I don't want women driving in Saudi Arabia.
