I never thought that women would be officially allowed to drive in KSA, at least not for another 25 years. Surprisingly, anything is possible and it is great because it is the revival of the sunnah. During the times of the beloved Prophet Muhamad S., women had their own camels as their means of transport. By 2018 women be able to drive their own car in the city and not just the dessert. So there is much to celebrate about! I've asked my students what they thought about the whole thing and some were very happy while others were could not care at all. If you ask me, I like to be driven than drive and that is a great luxury I wouldn't really want to trade. But to each their own wishes and now everyone can roam the roads as they please according the Islamic laws.
