Saudi women planning to drive on June 17 should observe the following guidelines for their safety:
1) Islamic dress code
2) There won’t be any gatherings. Go out only to run important errands, visit the hospital, drop kids off at school, etc.
3) It is encouraged that you videotape the event and upload it on Youtube.
4) Drive within city limits only.
5) To reaffirm our patriotism, fly the Saudi flag and lift up a photo of Abu Mit’ib (the King).
6) No need to be scared. If the police arrest you, you’ll only be required to sign on a pledge.
7) It is preferred that whoever plans on driving to have an international driver’s license.
8) It is better if a male accompanies you to protect you and to guarantee your safety (since the ball would just be starting to roll).
9) Avoid driving into any empty plots or deserted or faraway areas because that might pose some danger to you.
10) Driving is not scheduled for one day only. Saudi women are starting Friday but will continue to take to their cars beyond that date until a royal decree is issued.
11) Any woman who fails to comply is responsible for any possible consequences.
12) Ensure notifying family and friends of your intentions to drive (in case you go missing they’ll have an idea how to act).
13) If you have a phone with internet connection, follow WOMEN2DRIVE on Facebook and Twitter.
