JEDDAH,Jan 22: How long does it take for somebody to begin losing his or her ability to drive? According to one woman, a few years in Saudi Arabia is enough to begin worrying the skill will be forgotten. The daily Okaz reported yesterday that a foreign woman of unreported nationality was stopped not for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence — of alcohol or drugs) but rather for a DWW (Driving While a Woman).
The woman’s excuse was that after a few years in Saudi Arabia she was worried that she would forget how to drive. The police were forgiving, though, and released her after she promosed not to drive again inside Saudi Arabia.
