Similarly, around 99% of billionnaires own private jets. Less than 1% can fly them.(I made these statistics up, but you get the picture...) ;)
One wonders why, given that they can neither drive those cars nor legally will them nor use them as collateral for financial dealings nor dispense them as anything we would consider property. It's almost as if their names and deed are being used without them having any say-so about how or why. Almost a metaphor, one might poist.
I have heard sexist men complain about women drivers, but the truth is that women are better drivers than men, as auto insurance companies know, since they charge women drivers less for auto insurance than they charge male drivers, and all they care about is money.
Why do they have this law anyway? I mean it's not really fair on the women in the country. But hasn't anyone tried to make a change in Saudi Arabia? I mean Come on, the women can't let this matter brush over their head's, they need change, they have the right for change. I would also like to dig deeper into this subject so if anyone has any good sites/blogs please let me know.
