    No, No, don't do it, Prince Alwaleed. You will regret the decision for the rest of your life. Women should NOT be allowed to drive! :D

    A ban could only be lifted by the government in consultation with the country's top Islamic scholars.

    Saudi women are subject to a male "guardianship" system which requires they show permission from their guardian -- father, brother or husband -- to travel or, sometimes, work.

    So, are the Saudis regressive or progressive with these laws?
    Just kidding!
