Sure everyone’s got their priorities and the one that seems to matter big time at this point in Jeddah is women driving.
Earlier on this evening, I was reading about this Saudi actress who got stopped for driving. She did the proper thing and apologized to the Ministry of Interior for driving despite the rules here.
They released her and she’s fine (I assume) but her car’s been impounded. It’s not like she was driving around for fun, she had stuff to do. Bless her.
The fact that all that investigation had taken place bothered me and all I can think is, why don’t they investigate when stuff like this happens.
In my humble opinion, harassment is a much much bigger issue and this is what they can increase budgets for.
Oh wait, Summer is coming up. I’ll have many more of these to post. Urghh!
