Two Shoura Council members reopened discussion on women driving in the Kingdom.

Shoura member Haya Al-Minai said she is proposing to amend Article 36 in the Traffic Law to state that driving is an equal right for men and women.”I hope that our proposal to amend the Traffic Law will be voted on in the next Shoura Council meeting. Giving women the right to drive will increase their productivity,” said Al-Minai.
