Almost No Arrests as Women Drive in Saudi Arabia

UPDATE: First report of Saudi woman stopped by police, aggressively. Another report of a woman stopped by 6 police cars.

Saudi women who declared that they would drive their cars on June 17, 2011 did so today with no reports of arrests. The video above shows one such incident of a woman driving without being stopped by police. It is being rumored on Twitter that the police have been instructed not to arrest any women for driving.

I must say, it seems to be like the women of Saudi Arabia have just started the a social revolution in Saudi! 

As of now (7:41AM Pacific Time) about 50 women have claimed to drive in Saudi without any harassment from police, and the videos of women driving keep pouring in.

I will try to update with new developments as they come along.
