Special parking facilities for women


Saudi Gazette report

— Many neighborhoods have created special parking sections for women and families.

To celebrate the awaited day, shopping centers in Riyadh announced that they will give free parking for women.

Auto companies have seized the moment with ads marking the end of the ban, and private parking garages designated “ladies” areas with pink signage.

Social media is also celebrating with tweets like #You_Will_Drive_and_the_People_Are_With_You.

The government has permitted a handful of female driving schools in big cities.

The only driving school in Riyadh is fully booked and applicants are on a waiting list that lasts months.

Lamyaa Al-Brahim said she has been waiting for her appointment for two months.
