Maybe there's a good reason shariah law forbids women drivers.

A 24 year old muslim woman was killed in Sydney, Australia when her burkha became caught in the axle of the go cart (!?) that she was driving.  The neck injuries were so severe that the woman died soon after the accident.

Not the woman that was killed
but ya' gotta love the picture.

This brings to mind Isadora Duncan, the acknowledged creator of modern dance, who favored long flowing scarves.  At least right up until the moment one them got wound up in the spokes of her open top car strangling her almost to the point of decapitation.  (This accident caused Gertrude Stein to remark that "affectations can be dangerous.")

How droll.
