Our World: Baby on Board

Babies are so precious in Saudi Arabia - and that's why it's so hard to believe when I see sights like this every single day.  Most Saudis do not use seat belts and most do not buckle in their kids or use car seats for younger children. In this country women are not allowed to drive either.  So it probably comes as no surprise to learn that Saudi Arabia ranks very high on the worldwide list for traffic accidents and fatalities.

She is a cutie. I wish her lots of safe driving in spite of the lax safety measures.

I heard a comedian on the radio the other day giving a routine about how we Baby Boomers are cool compared to younger people. He mentioned that when we were young we got to ride in the front seat, without seat belts.

Seems inconceivable today in many countries, but evidently not in Saudi Arabia.
