Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has voiced his opinion on women not being allowed to drive in his country. Currently, Saudi women are not allowed to drive, rather they have to be shuttled around, which Prince Alwaleed says is an unnecessary strain on Saudi resources.

The deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman voiced his opposing view on the need for women to be allowed to drive. He says that it would cause a large social strain and resistance in society. While there is a religious aspect to not letting women drive, Salman is more concerned with the social implications.
