Men of Saudi Arabia line up for backseat drivers education


RIYADH – In the wake of a royal decree allowing them to not be the only ones allowed to drive, men across Saudi Arabia are reportedly lining up at schools that will teach them how to backseat drive for the first time.

“I have always wanted to drive from the back seat and this is my chance,” Saudi man Abdul Abdul said. “My wife has been scoffing, yelling, and trying to make me take the wrong turn for years. Now I finally get the chance to do the same.”

Saudi men were the last in the world who were unable to backseat drive, and Western governments applauded the recent royal decree.

“This is a historic moment for men across this peninsula,” Abdul said. “And I’m glad I’m living in the day where I can take control and drive from the back seat.”
