Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Bin Abdul-Aziz has signed a Royal Decree allowing women to drive. Saudi Arabia was the only country where women drivers were prohibited. The cultural edict in Saudi Arabia is seen responsible for this long-standing prohibition policy on women drivers. Women who protested paid heavy penalties. Since the 1990s, women’s rights activists in Saudi have been against this ban for their freedom and the right to drive. #SaudiWomenMove #SaudiWomenCanDrive
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman issued the decree and said that this is the right time for the right thing and his government considered driving by women as a social matter and not a religious issue. This order will be effective as on June 2018.
The Gulf Region is one of the largest markets for Automobiles and will see a significant rise of potential buyers after this historic announcement. Now, the US car companies like Ford and Jaguar can also jostle the market with Toyota and Hyundai, the current best sellers in Saudi.
