On 5/13/2011, the Arab News published an editorial about the issue of Saudi taxi drivers. Apparently many Saudi women won't get into a taxi if it's driven by a Saudi, they prefer foreign taxi drivers. Whether it's true or not, the Saudi drivers have a reputation for making advances and exhibiting other improper behavior when Saudi women get in their cars. The writer notes that this problem would be solved if women could drive in Saudi Arabia, pointing out that in conservative Muslim countries like Qatar and Kuwait, women drive and society has not collapsed (a common argument against women driving in Saudi Arabia).
