No Woman, No Drive

You must have heard of this great twist on the Bob Marley classic released to take the piss out of the no driving rule for chicks in Saudi Arabia.
Let’s not talk about the driving ban, I’m likely to spontaneously combust, but how fab that finally SOME Saudi women seem to be waking up

Watch out ladies!… you are now going to be penalised for being better drivers than men.

We have enjoyed lower insurance prices for many years and the now men have come fighting back, throwing gender discrimination in our faces.

The ECJ have ruled that gender discrimination cannot happen when pricing insurance. Must have been a man p***ed off with having to pay more than his wife, daughter, girlfriend etc…

Statistics show that women are lower risk drivers. Pricing insurance has to be performance related and surely women will be rewarded in the end for being better drivers!
