Saudi police chased and detained a local man for allowing his wife to drive the car while he was sat next to her, a newspaper reported on Sunday.
Surprised residents called the police when they saw a woman driving a car through the streets of the eastern town of Khobar, Facenews said.
“Police chased them and caught the two at a petrol station…they detained them and later they released the two after forcing the husband to pay a fine.”
Women are banned from driving cars in most areas in Saudi Arabia, one of the most conservative Moslem nations.
