If women drive ,1 million drivers would leave KSA (Riyadh)

" From an economic perspective, it will reduce the burdens on Saudi families. The president of McKinsey & Company, the top international consultancy company, said 1 million drivers would leave the Kingdom if women are allowed to drive. This means that Saudi families will save over SR1.5 billion a month, or SR18 billion annually considering a driver’s monthly salary is SR1,500. Also, allowing women to drive will reduce unemployment among women. It will give the Saudi man the opportunity to avail the services of his driver. "
