I am surprised that this wasn't already a thing in Saudi Arabia. I actually though there was a rule against women driving men.

    I can understand this in a very conservative Muslim area where customs and traditions are ultra conservative.  For a single women to be riding with an unknown male is considered taboo and probably punishable.  

    Just don't expect to see this happen in the US!!!  LOL

    I wish they would do this here in the US so I could avoid drunk males
