A Saudi Arabia woman was filmed driving a car, but the Police have meted out punishment on the grounds that the ban on female drivers has not yet been lifted – till June 2018.
According to AFP, authorities summoned the woman and booked her for flouting traffic regulations after she appeared in a video driving out of Ritz Carlton hotel in the capital, Riyadh.
“We call on all Saudi citizens to respect the law and wait until the ban on women driving formally ends,” the police spokesman said.
He added that the woman had not been arrested. He said the owner of the car was separately booked for violating traffic regulations.
